Western's Employment Resource Centre

   WERC is closing on April 8th, 2022 with the last day of classes. E-advising services will resume shortly after and remain throughout the summer.

Drop-in hours and Peer Mock Interviews will be back in the fall!

 We thank you for your patience as there may be significant delays in response time as we re-open after the spring exam period and transition our team.
