We know that they aspire to do meaningful work in careers that are fulfilling, so we want to give them every resource we can to help them find and secure those types of opportunities,” says Renee Scott, Director of Student Success and Recruitment at Cambrian College. “We believe that taking a proven tool like this and coupling it with the exceptional educational experience

Cambrian provides really puts students in a position to thrive after graduation.”

  • AI Mock Interview: Using the latest in AI technology, users take part in mock interviews and receive feedback to improve their interviewing skills.
  • Masterclass: This course is designed by professional career coaches to help students develop skills to feel confident when applying for their dream careers.
