The Career Advancement Centre (CAC) at Smith provides comprehensive services and resources to achieve your career goals including:

  • Career direction and exploration
  • Personal branding (Resume, Cover Letter, Professional Pitch and LinkedIn)
  • Networking opportunities
  • On-campus recruiting
  • Online resources
  • Job offers and salary negotiations


The CAC’s Corporate Relations team coordinates on-campus recruiting, and an online student resume book to connect students and employers. You also have 24/7 access to QUEST, our career management platform which includes job postings, and a database containing salary information and job interview questions as experienced by past Smith students.

Throughout the year, the program hosts a variety of annual industry networking events for current students, alumni and representatives from hiring organizations. This provides an excellent opportunity to meet and speak with people from industry.

Our team of professional Career Coaches is available to work with you to define your career objectives, and, if required, help shape your job-search strategy and fine-tune your resume, cover letter and interview skills.


Career Development Sessions:
Queen's provides career-related information sessions, seminars, workshops and conferences to help you create and implement effective career management strategies.

Powerful Virtual Networking

Smith delivers powerful networking opportunities within its programs no matter the platform or delivery format. From career preparation and employer roundtables, to virtual coaching, team project facilitation, and special events, Smith’s approach and platforms ensure rich engagement.

“There are many other classes on the market today that offer insight into the Digital Product Management approach, all promising short-term time commitments for accreditation. Smith's MDPM program is the only program that I found which takes a deep dive with the curriculum focused around academic thought leadership as well as incorporating the experiential application of learning throughout the program. This is the only program of its kind in this space that offers ongoing career support after graduation through SmithConnect and the Career Advancement Centre.”
