Career Kickstart Cohort

What is the Career Kickstart Cohort (CKC)?

The CKC will help you make the most of your studies and career-building opportunities at uLethbridge. There are a number of milestones to achieve as a University student before reaching the ultimate goal of leveraging your studies and experiences into a fulfilling career. The CKC will start you on the right track.

Explore and integrate academic, personal and career development. By the time you graduate from uLethbridge, you’ll be ready for the new world of work. 

You'll access career and professional development activities as well as experiential and work-integrated learning opportunities. Discover unknown skills and passions, define meaningful career options, and challenge yourself to explore new interests.

Living in residence will also ensure a smooth and safe transition to university.  As part of the CKC, you’ll have a built-in community that enhances academic performance and social success. You’ll make friends, find study partners, develop resilience, and fine-tune your interpersonal skills.
