The Career Centre is your source for career and employment information and expertise at the University of Alberta (UAlberta). We strive to empower the talented people at UAlberta to develop the skills, knowledge, experiences, and connections they need to confidently manage their careers. We use a planned happenstance approach as careers can be affected by unplanned events. This approach involves taking action and trying new things—even if you are unsure of the outcome.

When exploring career options, we encourage you keep the following in mind:

  • Engage—deliberately and intentionally—in a variety of activities.
  • Follow your curiosities and interests.
  • Get involved in life beyond academics.

It's also important to take time to reflect on your actions, both during and after. This reflection can help you identify what you enjoyed, what you learned, what you disliked, and what you can do next.

For people with a permanent disability or mental health diagnosis, finding and keeping work is usually no different than for those without disabilities. However, there may be additional things to consider:
If, when, and how should I tell others about my disability?
Will disclosing my disability help me reach my goal of securing and maintaining work?
Will disclosing my disability help me get the support and accommodations I need to be successful in the workplace?

Disclosing your disability is an important and complex decision that is entirely yours to make. What is right for one person in one situation, may not be successful in another.

The Accessibility Work Experience Program Coordinator can meet with you to discuss the question of disclosure and to help you determine whether and how to request accommodations in the workplace.
