Meet the Team
Laura Fraser (she/her)
Career Services Advisor,
Hi there! My name is Laura, and I am a Career Services Advisor at Yorkville University. My role is to support Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology students land a practicum placement and assist with finding their first positions upon graduation. I’m here to help with career exploration, resume and cover letter writing, networking, mock interviews, and job search techniques to help our students jumpstart their counselling careers. I pride myself on supporting students with a solution-focused approach to assist them in putting their best foot forward when it comes to taking the next step in their career journey.
For over 10 years, I have been working with young people to help them achieve educational goals, gain employment, and learn new skills. Before Yorkville, I have worked as a high school guidance counsellor and as an employment program coordinator in the non-profit sector supporting newcomers start their careers in Canada. I hold a Master of Education in Counselling and have completed several courses through the Career Professionals of Canada National Association.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy trying new recipes, hosting family and friends, traveling with my partner and catching up on my favourite reality shows. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and connect – I truly look forward to meeting you!
