Faculty and Staff
Co-op & Career Services is proud of its partnerships within the Conestoga community. Ongoing collaboration with Conestoga faculty and staff members aids our team in more effectively supporting our students' career and employment-related goals. We encourage you to refer your students to our department and its resources or contact us directly with any questions or requests.
Career Advising for Students
Do you have students who:
- Think they're in the wrong program?
- Want advice on program selection
- Want to transfer within or outside Conestoga?
- Want to explore post-grad options?
- Are thinking about going to university?
- Want to take advantage of articulation agreements?

Career Advisors can assist students with these and other career-related questions. To arrange an in-person or virtual advising appointment, students can visit Co-op & Career Services (Doon 1A105) or call extension 2298.
Job Fairs and Employer Events
Job fairs and employer events are an important component of student success, and we appreciate the support of faculty and staff by encouraging students to attend. You can help by displaying any provided promotional materials on the DVP at the beginning or end of class and by giving students the flexibility within class schedules to attend events. All events hosted by our department will be advertised on the MyCareer Events Calendar.
