Why self-awareness is key to your career DNA.
The Information you need to kick-start your career
The Business Career Centre has designed Career Toolkits specifically for UBC Sauder students to develop career-ready skills employers are looking for. Based on competencies defined by hundreds of employers, as well as career development expertise from UBC Sauder’s Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre, these toolkits give you the resources to feel comfortable, confident, and capable in your career with everything you need to be successful to find your ideal career.
The Career Toolkits aren’t a magic bullet: you won’t get a job by simply reading each one cover-to-cover. But, if you commit to doing the exercises with authenticity, effort, and follow through, you will discover your path, find your ideal career, and get hired.

How to use Career Toolkits:
- Start with the competencies that resonate with you most, regardless of the order. There is no one linear path to your career.
- Already taken COMM 202? The toolkits complement everything we do at the career centre, including COMM 202: Career Fundamentals. Use them to refresh the skills you developed in class and take them to the next level to find your ideal career.
- Designed to fit your busy lives. Download the toolkits and work through the content at your own pace. The goal is to empower you to take your career development into your own hands outside of the classroom and outside of the Henry Angus building.
- Stuck on where to begin? Start with you. A meaningful career aligns with your values, strengths and interests. Understanding that is a good first step in your career journey. Consider starting with the Strengths, Values and Motivators Toolkit.

"The toolkits provided me with everything I needed to know for my first job search. It was a great resource for FAQs and it helped me format my resume, write coffee chat follow up emails, and refine my LinkedIn profile. I highly recommend you use these toolkits as a foundation for your job search!" - Agnes T., Marketing Student
