Taking your career places

Starting a career in a new country can be challenging, but not when you have the right support in your corner. Robertson Workforce connects work-ready students and graduates with industry and employer partners. Our team members have diverse coaching and professional backgrounds and will work together to help you get your foot in the door.

Preparing Students for Career Success

Here's how we 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 our Employment Strategy Search sessions or contact us to have them proofread by our team. You’ll learn how to tailor your resume to the job you’re pursuing and properly showcase your skills. Don’t have a draft? No worries, we’ll help you get started.

Prepare for your interview

Nervous about job interviews? You can come to us for 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're here to help you narrow down your job search. Learn how to master online job search engines and how to use keywords to find positions that best match your goals, and profile. Have a question about a specific industry? We’ll do our best to answer it.

Get You Connected

At Workforce, we understand the power of connections in kickstarting your career. With our extensive network of industry partners, we open doors for candidates at every stage. Whether you're a student, recent graduate, or seasoned professional, our connections pave the way for meaningful opportunities and career advancement.

Networking and Community Connections

Here's how we help you on your career journey.

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.

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).

I feel very supported. I know if anything happens, I could always go back to my careers department because they are willing to support me without me asking.
