Career questions? UVic’s got you covered.


UVic’s career services team is here to
help you answer four big questions: What do you love, what are you great at, what does the world need, and what can you be paid for. I’m Jeremy Pierce and as a career educator I support students in the human and social development programs and sciences programs My name is Joy and I
support humanities, fine arts, and education My name is Richard Myers and I
support the social science students My name is John Fagan and I support the
engineering and computer science programs My name is Andrée-Anne Leroy and I
support students in a Bachelor of Commerce program Our main location is at Career Services, which is in Campus Services Building to the left of the Bookstore We also host drop-in hours in the
afternoons in the library, and we have workshops in the library as well. Students can find me in the engineering computer science career services office which is in ECS 210 Students can find me in BEC 107. I’m in the office Monday to Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. I encourage students to come and see me
as soon as possible and whenever they’re ready to engage in parts of the career
development process. Students can come and meet with me and first year, in second year…just whatever career questions are occurring to them. So maybe in first year they’re worried about “Am I, you know, choosing the right courses to
take and how will that take me to a career that I will love?” I think the most common thing I hear from students is, “I’m graduating, I’m finished, now what?” “Should I go to graduate school or straight to employment?” “What am I good at?” “What’s a good career direction for me to go in?” And that’s a question that you can ask any time. It doesn’t have to be near graduation,
because the summer job that you choose or the on-campus experience that you
gain, or the courses you take–it all builds towards having a great future.
