University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) offers our students a diverse range of academic programs where they develop strong and transferable skill sets. We use three key strategies to support our students in the transition to their careers: professional preparation; gaining relevant experience and facilitating connections.
Professional preparation: helping our students to learn more about their potential career pathways and what they need to be successful via guest speakers, job shadowing, experiential opportunities. Also includes opportunities for developing and practicing the skills they need via professional development programs, workshops, individual appointments and feedback from professionals.
Gaining Relevant Experience: access to opportunities on and off campus, through our Work Study program, Internship and field placement courses, Get Experience and Get Hired Fairs, Co-Curricular Record activities, our ICube accelerator and the Career Learning Network which contains numerous job postings.
Facilitate Connections: enabling students to meet and network with professionals via networking events and panels, employer visits, community partnerships with local non-profits and governments.
These strategies involve staff and faculty across campus and they involve our partners in Mississauga and Peel. We are always looking to increase our partnerships and deepening existing ones, so if you can help us help our students reach their career goals, please let us know.
