In order to be eligible for the service offered by ECC, you must be an undergraduate enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering (or Bioresource). Services are offered to graduate students and Alumni as well. Undergraduates enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering are required to pay a non-optoutable $50/semester fee.

ECC provides sample CVs, individual CV review sessions (drop-ins or appointments), cover letter workshops, and more.
Interview Preparation
Employers expect you to be thoroughly prepared for your interview. Preparation and practice are key. ECC offers Mock Interview Days as well as general interview workshops.
Internship Credits
If you are looking to go on internship during your university career, you are eligible to get credits for it (FACC 200). It requires being a fulltime student before and after the work term.
