Career Leadership Program (CLP)

Career Leadership Program (CLP)

Want to develop leadership, communication, public speaking and interpersonal skills? Looking for a meaningful and challenging volunteer opportunity? Excited about the possibility of connecting with various students, staff and faculty across the university?

If so you should join CLP for the upcoming academic year!

CLP is designed to provide positive and professional career-related assistance to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as raise awareness of the services offered by CaPS.


The Role of the Career Leaders

Career Leaders are a vital link between all McGill students and CaPS. They are involved in various activities such as – workshop development and facilitation, CV and LinkedIn review sessions as well as outreach & liaising with various student groups, departments and faculties across campus.

We recommend that all Career Leaders volunteer a minimum of two hours per week if possible. Students who wish to dedicate more time, and have more responsibility while honing leadership, organization and decision making skills, should consider applying to one of the three core positions (CLP Coordinator/CLP Outreach Crew Captain/CLP Career Advising Crew Captain).
