Resources for Faculty

Career Services supports the Academic Centres through workshops, events, an online job board and resource materials. In addition, each Academic Centre has a designated Career Advisor who will facilitate program-specific content and help develop a career-related curriculum. Question? Contact us.

Collaborate with your Program's Career Advisor

Faculty are welcome to consult with their assigned Career Advisor for recommendations on career-related support resources or tools to support their classroom instruction.

*Due to current operational and staffing levels within Career Services, all workshops will be delivered mostly virtually. We apologize for the inconvenience. (Nov. 15, 2022)

Guidelines for Faculty

  • While the Career Services team is excited to support faculty, all requested student workshops/engagement should be held during in-class time
  • To ensure all GBC students have access to our book with our Career Advisors for one-on-one support in a timely manner, faculty should refrain from requesting their students to book one-on-one appointments for course assignments or projects. Our team is dedicated to being available to all students across the College, so this process allows for students who are personally seeking timely career support to be able to access it.

Interview Prep

Interview Prep is a great tool to assist faculty in facilitating in-class mock interview practice. Faculty can create and curate specific class lists and interview questions. Afterwards, students can use the platform and record their responses. After recording, students can send recordings to faculty or anyone else (even those without an account - such as an industry partner) to review and provide feedback.
