Job searching is a process at any time. But, there are still multiple employment options, and places to turn for employment support during Covid-19.

Make sure that you are managing your expectations.
During this period you might consider employment options in your greater-community, even if they are outside of your area of study, degree program, or career track/goals. This experience is still good experience. Oftentimes, experiences outside of a student’s field or interests can build important transferable skills which can be used later when applying for jobs in any field.

Career Services has compiled a page of resources for students seeking employment.

These resources include:

ACT to Employ supports Carleton students with disabilities in finding paid experiential learning placements while they obtain their degree. Take a look at our post about Act to Employ for information about how they can support your job-search, and how to get in touch; or visit the Act to Employ webpage.

International students have the opportunity to apply to The International Internship Program. A virtual internship offers you the chance to work remotely while you gain degree-related experience, build your employability skills, develop international connections in your field, as well as earn academic credit.

For more information please contact the International Internship Team (international.internships@carleton.ca) or visit the Career Services International Internship Program webpage to apply.
