York’s Career Centre has redefined the possible for the delivery of critical career information to students. On October 16, the Career Centre officially launched the Career Cyberguide, an exceptional advancement in service to students.
Using cutting-edge online technology, the Career Cyberguide makes career information available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This guide acts as a state-of-the-art multimedia manual, allowing students access to PowerPoint presentations, videos and handouts on a variety of topics involving the career development process, including job searching, resumes, interviews, networking and cover letters.
As well, the Career Cyberguide serves as a gateway for the stories and profiles of extraordinary people from the York community with exceptional careers.
This unique and exciting multimedia guide is accessible on York’s Career Centre Web site at http://www.yorku.ca/careers/index.asp.
