Advising appointments can be booked with an Undergraduate or Graduate Career Advisor once you are fully registered with the Career Management Services (CMS) and have attended the Resume and Job Search Strategies Workshops. Advising appointments are in high demand, so if you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, please call CMS at (514) 848-2424 ext. 4245 and let the Department Assistant know one working day in advance so that your time slot can be reallocated to another student.

Each guide has been developed by a local career specialist and is updated annually.
