The Career Centre recognizes the value of providing tailored services to all groups on campus. As a result, we work closely with campus clubs and academic areas to provide specialized events and workshops geared to their particular interests.
Through a generous donation from the RBC Foundation, the Laurier Career Development Centre launched the RBC Career Transition Program for Students with Disabilities in 2007 to meet the needs of Laurier students and alumni with disabilities. While serving students and alumni with disabilities remains a priority, the focus of the program has expanded to include other distinct groups, such as Aboriginal students/alumni, queer students/alumni, and international students. This inclusive, innovative programming encompasses career-related research, specialized resources, technology, staff development and accessibility to better serve our students, alumni and employers.
Our integrated career development program includes all aspects of career development. We work closely with diverse groups on campus to offer specialized programming and consulting on career-related topics. As a result, our students are ready to enter the professional world and contribute to the workforce.
We appreciate the leadership and support from the RBC Foundation to make this initiative possible.
The Career Centre offers a wide variety of services for all students and alumni, as well as programming and information geared to the specific career related issues for each distinct group, recognizing that multiple identities will overlap.
