Equipping students with career development knowledge, resources, and skills, we empower students to locate meaningful employment and networking opportunities throughout their studies, as well as when they graduate.

What is career advising?

Career advising is an appointment service offered to all students at the University of Niagara Falls Canada. A Career Advisor can assist by providing guidance, resources, and supports intended to help students understand how their strengths, interests, and values may be applied to various career options.

By meeting with our Career Advisor, students will have the opportunity to discuss their career questions and goals, while gaining professional knowledge and skills to support their job search.

Career advising appointments are booked for 45 minutes and are available in-person or online. Select services may also be offered through email. View the various appointment types below to learn more about the assistance available.
