Through one-on-one coaching with our experienced BCom Career Strategists, Co-op Managers, and Career Peer Advisors, along with tailored events and programs focused on your career development, you have opportunities to explore, discover, and realize your career aspirations.
Plus, we leverage UBC Sauder's extensive network to connect you with the business community. To help you make connections we facilitate:
- Industry events & workshops: Company recruiting sessions, hiring events, networking events, and more
- Information interviews and mock interviews: check out our interview prep resources
- Mentorship & specialty programs: Brand Management, Finance Mentorship, and Capital Markets Training, to name a few
Additionally, each year, we post thousands of internship and full-time job opportunities on the COOL Career Platform that span diverse industries and roles.
