Student Information and Guidelines

The following services are available to all current students, as well as recent alumni who completed a program at NorQuest College in the last 12 months.

Employment Preparation

  1. Reviewing resumes and cover letters: During this appointment, a career consultant will go over your existing resume and cover letter and provide you with feedback on content, structure and format. We require you to bring a resume and cover letter to the appointment in order for the Consultant to review them. The consultant will not write a resume or cover letter for you, nor will they retype your existing ones. Ensure that you keep copies of your documents as the Student Career and Employment Services department does not retain copies of students’ resumes and cover letters.
