  • “Utilizing the Career Development services at Durham College helped prepare me for my first interview post-graduation. The mock interview was very important and gave me an idea of what the interviewer may ask, helped calm my anxiety, and be a little more relaxed. I strongly urge ALL Durham College students to visit the wonderful staff at the Career Development office to help prepare them for the workforce after graduation.”

    Jean-Paul, Occupational Therapist Assistant and Physiotherapist Assistant
