Education Career Services

Our Education Career Services team is here to help Queen’s teacher candidates and alumni with their career decisions and job search strategies – whether they are hoping to teach in Ontario, across Canada or internationally, or are looking for employment outside of the teaching profession.. We organize a number of career and employment events and workshops at our Faculty throughout the year to help our teacher candidates plan for their future careers.
