Log in to myCareer: https://mycareer.dal.ca/login/student.htm
Upon entering myCareer, you will see the main menu (left-hand side of the screen if viewing from a laptop/desktop computer); the two menu options that most students find confusing are Career Services and Management Career Services.
As a Dalhousie student, you have access to the career services and resources provided by the Bissett Student Success Centre (located in the Student Union Building on the Studley campus) which can be found under the Career Services tab. This includes job postings for part-time, full-time, summer, casual, and volunteer positions, among other non-co-op opportunities.
BComm, BMgmt, and CRMBA students will have access to the exclusive and industry-specific services and resources provided by Management Career Services. This includes Co-op/Internship job postings, registration for exclusive career events and employer information sessions, as well as the ability to book a 30-minute meeting with a Career & Recruitment Specialist. Students should be in the habit of logging into myCareer often to see new opportunities as they become available.
In the main part of the screen you’ll see a blue circle icon in the bottom right corner; click to action the following options: Search Postings, Book an Appointment, Register for an Event, and Submit A Form. Underneath your name on the main screen, there are multiple tabs that feature popular menu services offered through myCareer, which include:
- Co-Curricular Record
- Event Registration
The default view when you log in is the Dashboard tab. Within the Dashboard tab, you can toggle between the Overview, My Account, My Forms, and My Calendar buttons. The Overview button displays your upcoming schedule, featured job postings (Co-op and Non Co-op), and any upcoming events or workshops. The My Account tab displays pertinent information to the account user and allows you to make edits to certain fields. Please note that the My Forms button does not currently host information for Faculty of Management student users. The My Calendar button allows you to view the events you have registered for, appointments you have booked, or job interviews you have scheduled. The default calendar view will not display the content until you click on the gray Toggle Filters button and select which items you wish to view.
Click on the Co-op tab to view details regarding your Co-op Record and Co-op Sequence.
The Co-Curricular Record recognizes your extra-curricular activities and experiences outside the classroom. The Co-Curricular Catalogue is a searchable database of opportunities and can also be accessed under the CCR tab on the left navigation bar. If you have created a Co-Curricular Record (CCR), click on this tab to view the activities that have been posted to your CCR. To print your CCR, or add a new position to your record, click on Co-Curricular Record in the main menu.
The Documents tab allows you to view any files you have uploaded to myCareer, such as cover letters, resumes, and application packages. When viewing your documents, myCareer gives you the option to toggle between Bissett Student Success Centre Documents and Management Career Services Documents at the top of the box. Note: It is important to remember that myCareer is not intended as a long-term file storage solution. Be sure to save copies of all your application documents to your own personal computer drive or web-based file storage account.
Within the Interviews tab, you can toggle between MCS Interviews and Interviews. Both areas will detail interviews you have been selected for that are unscheduled, and interviews that have been booked, with respect to current or past applications. The default setting is “Today / Upcoming” but this can easily be changed by selecting another option from the drop-down list.
When employers want to use myCareer as a resource to schedule interviews with prospective Co-op students, you will be notified by email to log in to the myCareer site and confirm a timeslot for your upcoming interview.
MCS Staff Appointments
During a 30-minute, one-on-one appointment, an MCS Career and Recruitment Specialist will provide industry-specific expert advice to meet your individual needs. We provide appointments for:

Under the Appointments tab, students can view any upcoming or past appointments that have already been booked or cancelled.
If you have registered for one of our upcoming events, (such as a workshop, information session or recruiting event) the time and place of the event will be listed in this section. To retrieve a detailed description (date, time, location) of the event you have registered for, or to cancel your registration, simply click on the event name.
