Career Exploration Resources

In order to choose a career path that excites you, you need to do some research into fields and occupations you're interested in.



Looking for individual career support? - Book an appointment to meet with one of our Career Counsellors.

Career Conversations - Students can explore a variety of careers within a specific field, connect with York alumni and individuals working in their field of interest, and get inside tips on securing employment in a specific industry from professionals who do the hiring.

Career Exploration Guide & Workbook - As deciding on a career is not as simple as just matching you and your program of study to an occupation, the objective of this guide is to help you reflect on your personality, interests, values, skills and other factors instrumental to making career decisions. Taking the time to reflect and learn more about yourself will assist you in deciding career options that are aligned with who you are. Check out the Career Exploration Guide & Workbook.

Career Exploration Videos- If you're thinking about your career options and wondering what you can do with your degree, you may find these sessions helpful. Included in this section are Career Conversations Panels which feature professionals talking about their personal career stories and career options in their field.

T.A.S.T.E Mentoring Program- The objective of this program is to provide York Students with an opportunity to talk virtually with a professional about their career related interests.
