Career questions

Our what can I do with a degree in... page has links to the best places to ask for career advice. 

In general, there are three places to ask career questions:

  1. Ask the co-op coordinator in your area. They place undergraduate students in co-op terms every year so they really know what positions are being offered.  They also tend to know what past graduates have gone on to, so they can tell you about types of career paths they've seen students take.
  2. Ask the departmental undergraduate adviser. They mainly give advice about courses and programs but may have an idea of careers that recent graduates have gone on to.
  3. For more general questions, including interdisciplinary advice, ask our . You can also visit the Co-op and Career Services site.
