Degree to Career

What is the Degree to Career Web Site?

One of the most common concerns our office hears from students is ‘what can I do with my degree?’ Launching in January 2015, Western’s new Degree to Career website helps students to answer this question! Students can search by their degree and program, identify their transferable skills, and see what industries and occupations are a potential fit.

To compliment this information we also want to feature YOUR organization and your specific job titles. The Canadian job market includes thousands of job titles. However, students are most often familiar with professions; careers with a formalized path and designation. We want students to start seeing and thinking about the diverse job titles and opportunities that exist.

We are proud to include you in this new initiative. Together, we will contribute to students’ career development and ensure the on-going success of Western graduates in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

What is included?

With your registration, the Degree to Career website will include:

  1. Your organization’s logo
  2. A paragraph about your organization
  3. Job titles of your new graduate roles
  4. Skills you look for in candidates
  5. Your website
  6. Your contact information (optional)
