Resources for students, post-grads and off-to-work folk

Sometimes it's hard to stay positive when work and school are concerned. But no matter how tough it gets, be assured: Your city isn't out to get you, and your degree can pay off.

Making progress is hard to do alone, which is why people talk so much about the value of connections when they talk about careers. Don't be shy about seeking help from your existing connections, and if you think you need new connections, it's time to start making them.

You may spark connections anywhere, and you can find your collective if you look hard enough. But for all of those times you can't seem to get a lead, here are two helpful resources that you can keep in your back pocket for later.

Halifax Partnership

Halifax Partnership is a resource offered to those wanting to help grow their economy by working together and letting their individual voices shine. The team discusses Halifax's economic development, bridges the need for work in the community and helps you share your business ideas. Invest in yourself, and in your city, by helping attract people to Halifax to keep, start and grow businesses here. Join the collective, share your ideas and build your network in a sustainable and productive way.

Careers Nova Scotia

Careers Nova Scotia can help you get into the school or job of your dreams by figuring out exactly what you want and need in a profession. Log in to fill out career quizzes, or to tap into the luxurious labour market information. Figure out your career planning steps by identifying opportunities near you, and even punch in your personal criteria for jobs. You can use this site to spiff up your cover letter writing skills or spruce up your resume. Careers Nova Scotia has the tools you need to nail those fear-producing interviews and leave on a good note.
