University Canada West’s Career Development Centre (CDC) was created to facilitate an engaging partnership with its students and alumni as they transition from higher education into the workforce and beyond. Through these partnerships, the Career Development Centre bridges the gap between what employers are looking for and career opportunities for students and alumni.
