The service operates twenty-four-hours a day, all year at Carleton University, and from late August to late April at Algonquin College.

Accessible Career Transition (ACT) and ACT to Employ

Career Services offer two programs to provide career support to students with disabilities at Carleton.

 ACT Advising assists students and alumni through their career journey by assisting with career exploration strategies, job search strategies, documentation preparation, interview preparation and workplace accommodations.

ACT To Employ helps facilitate meaningful employment opportunities for Carleton students with disabilities. The main objective is to support students in the transition to employment by connecting them with quality hands-on work experience while supporting employers in creating open, welcome, and diverse workplaces. Simultaneously, we provide end-to-end support to employers through the recruitment process and during work terms.
