Drop-In Sessions & Booked Appointments
Career Advisor Appointments
Career Advisors are available for appointments through a virtual/ online delivery option (Teams in Office 365). To book an appointment, login to your Experience Guelph account and in the left hand menu, click on "Career" and then "Appointments".
There are limits to the number of appointments you can cancel, as well as the number of appointments that you do not attend. The maximum number of cancelled appointments (per semester) is set at three (3). The maximum number of no-show (unattended) appointments (per semester) is set at two (2). After you reach this maximum, the system will not let you book an appointment and you will have to speak to our office to have this rectified.
Peer Helper Services
The Peer Helpers will offer a hybrid service delivery for the fall, being available for both in-person and video call appointments.
Peer Helpers can provide support for resumes, cover letters, mock interviews, LinkedIn, and mock faculty conversations.
Please note that applications for graduate school or other further education should be seen by a Career Advisor, as Peer Helpers only assist with applications for employment or volunteering.
We are happy to provide two different ways to connect with a Peer Helper.
1. Booked Appointments
Login to Experience Guelph and select Career > Peer Appointments to book a time to meet with a Peer Helper. Peer Helpers are available:
In-person: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Here's how to find the Experiential Learning Hub.
Online: Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
When booking an appointment, the top of the page indicates the location (either 'Virtual/Online' or 'Experiential Learning Hub'). Please be sure to select an appointment with the appropriate choice for your needs.
Note that bookings in Experience Guelph must be made 48 hours in advance, but we may be able to provide a same-day appointment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the times you are available and the nature of your appointment, and we may be able to book you in for a time to meet with a Peer Helper on the same business day.
2. Email Correspondence
We recognize that rural internet connections, challenging living situations and other factors can be a barrier to meeting with a Peer Helper via video call. This is why we are also offering the option for you to email in your documents for feedback.
To receive feedback on your resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile via email, please email email@example.com and a Peer Helper will reply with feedback in the comments of your document within two business days (excluding holidays and university closures).
