Career Development

As part of the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, the Career Development office supports the professional development of emerging OCAD U creative talent. We provide direction, resources and opportunities which lead to the realization of transformative personal and early-career goals.

The Career Development office has the experience, networks and agility to take on ambitious partnerships which benefit students and recent alumni.
