Career Preparation

Here’s how we can help you on your career journey.

Craft your resume and cover letter

Your resume and cover letter are your first introduction to potential employers. Bring your drafts to an Employment Strategy Search session and have them proofread by our team. You’ll learn how to sharpen and customize your writing to the job you’re pursuing so the information is relevant and your skills are showcased well. Don’t have a draft? No problem. We’ll help you get started.

Prepare for your interview

Even if you’re a few years into your career, you can come to us for interview support. Learn about business etiquette, dress code and soft skills and demonstrate them in mock interviews where we’ll give you tips on how to answer professionally. With remote work on the rise, you’ll also learn about the remote interview process and how to ask relevant questions at the end of your interview.

Focus your job search

No matter where you’re at in your career journey, we can help you narrow down your job search. Learn about the top online job search engines and how to use specific keywords to find positions that best match your goals, skills and experience. Have a question about the industry? We’ll do our best to answer it.

Practicum Coordination and Support

Industry Connections

Our team has relationships with organizations that can, in turn, create meaningful career relationships for you! If you’re looking for a position, our industry connections can help. Check in with our team and see if any of our partners are looking for students that fit the job and you might get an interview.

Practicum Placement

When you’re a student, relevant hands-on experience is priceless and nearly all of our programs include a mandatory practicum placement in your chosen field. You’ll gain hands-on training with a real employer and get to apply your knowledge and skills from class. Tell us your goals and interests and we’ll help you find a placement that challenges you so you can hit the ground running with confidence once you graduate.

Networking and Community Connections

Networking Events

Since Robertson partners with many local organizations and businesses, there are always plenty of opportunities for networking as a student. You can attend Community Mixers and listen to organizations talk about what they do and how you can pursue a career in the field.

At Career Development Workshops, you get to interact with industry professionals and a Workforce Team member, participating in Q&A sessions and interactive activities like mock interviews. These events are a great way to connect with other professionals and alumni in your industry.

Job and Resume Referrals

Our team has many industry connections, so we can help you find relevant job postings and in some cases, even refer you to a potential employer. We can also pass along your resume through our employer network and see if you’ll be a good fit for the organizations that are hiring. In many cases, our connections also reach out to us, looking for students with relevant skills and career goals (which means potential interview opportunities for you).

Employer Network

Our relationships with industry partners help our students get meaningful practicums, employment and networking opportunities. Here are the organizations we partner with and have as part of our network.

International Student Support

If you’re an international student, you also get to experience a practicum! Our International Support Team will help you secure a practicum that matches your skills and interests.

Starting a career in a new country can be both exciting and challenging. Contact our team if you need some guidance on how to get your foot in the door.
