A part of UNB's mission is to provide you, our students, with a transformative student experience encouraging initiative and innovation by unlocking your creative potential. As students exploring your entrepreneurial spirit, we commit to helping you understand and solve the problems of today and tomorrow. As graduates, you will be prepared to make a significant difference in the world - creating opportunities for yourselves and for others. 

Take charge of your career development

Different stages of your education include different tasks for your career planning. It's important to keep in mind that not all students plan their career paths the same way, nor at the same pace--and this is okay. Use the Career Tasks Checklist to help guide you through planning and preparing for an exhilarating future.

It's important to keep in mind that career planning leads to more informed academic choices that are better linked and more relevant to your interests. Students who participate in career planning and skill-based workshops have reported

  1. heightened motivation,
  2. a better understanding of career planning & preparation, and
  3. understanding the importance of researching options.

It's always a good idea to be open to new possibilities and options and to discuss these with your academic advisor and career support expert.
