The Career Centre provides on-line self-assessment tools to help you identify and focus your interests and career choices. Visit www.trentu.ca/careers/students/selfassess.html.

Throughout the summer you can still meet with Career Centre staff to help you plan for your career, find employment, or have your resume critiqued. Contact the Career Centre to make an appointment.

Check out the "Career Options Project" at http://www.trentu.ca/careers/students/careeroptions.html to explore specific discipline information for Trent students and graduates. The Career Centre resource library has a whole section dedicated to post-graduate and professional programs for those interested in pursuing their education beyond Trent.
