If you’ve graduated within the last three years, you can still access Saint Mary’s Career & Experiential Learning office, as a special benefit for young alumni. Located on the 4th floor of the Donnell O'Hennessey Student Centre, they offer recent graduates access to continued career counseling, assessments, and career development support. 

Here are some of the ways the Career & Experiential Learning team can help you post-graduation: 

Career Counselling

Career Counselling is a confidential, in-depth service tailored to the client and addresses career and education concerns. Our Career Counsellors are graduate-trained professionals who are skilled and experienced in helping students work through questions and obstacles, and can support them in making the best decisions related to their career path. This free service is available to all students and alumni for three years’ post-graduation. Book an appointment online at Career360° 

Career & Employment Coaching

Recent graduates can book an appointment, or attend our walk-in hours, with a Career and Employment Coach! Our Career and Employment Coaches support individuals with resume development, cover letter writing, social media profiling, job searching, networking, interviewing and more. In addition, alumni can visit the Saint Mary’s University job bank on Career360° to view up to date job postings in Halifax and beyond with our partner employers. In addition, alumni can book one-to-one appointments on Career360° and learn about any new career and job related events both on and off campus.

Employer Engagement

Employer Engagement at Career & Experiential Learning provides opportunities for students and employers to engage and interact with each other in direct, meaningful, and impactful ways.
