Career Advising

When you book an advising appointment, you will receive instructions to meet your advisor virtually. In-person advising services are closed as part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Find your dream job

Career-focused advisors help NAIT students and alumni realize and achieve their long-term career plans. Advisors are happy to discuss job search strategies, practice the interview process and review cover letters, resumes and LinkedIn profiles. 

Interview practice

Interviews can be tricky. Our advisors offer NAIT students and alumni one-on-one support and coaching through mock interviews before the real thing. 

Resume & cover letter review

We all know how far a great resume and cover letter go in securing an interview. Our career support services include resume and cover letter reviews for NAIT students and alumni. Our advisors are also happy to provide feedback on student and alumni LinkedIn profiles, supporting them to build their professional brand. 

 Current students can book advising appointments and see the latest career-related initiatives and events in the MyNAIT Portal.
