The Mooseheads Career Development program is aimed at supporting former Moohsheads players in their transition from post-secondary education into the professional world- wherever that may take them. Former players will meet with a dedicated career strategist, attend group workshops throughout the year, and be matched with a mentor.

Throughout the program, players will: 1. Identify career options and a path to those options. 2. Create a personal career strategy. 3. Build or strengthen existing “job seeker toolkit”, i.e. resume, cover letter, interviewing skills, networking strategies and skills, etc. 4. Learn tactics and practices that can be used during and after the program to advance in professional life. 5. Build self-confidence. 6. Gain an understanding of career paths, labor market trends, and opportunities. 7. Be matched with a mentor.

A managed mentorship component is also an integral part of the Mooseheads Career Development program, providing opportunities for players to apply their learnings, build connections, and gain understanding of workplace culture and labor market opportunities in their area(s) of interest.
