Complete the Volunteer Survey

Next Steps is an intensive and energizing two day conference for transitioning students and recent U of T graduates. The conference is held annually at the end of the academic year. It is part career exploration, part preparation for life after graduation, and a great way for students and young alumni to start building their professional networks.

With a variety of speakers, career exploration panels, personal and professional development seminars and networking opportunities, Next Steps lets you explore options you may not have even known you had.

Who Should Attend?

If you are a graduating student in the Faculty of Arts & Science, a recent University of Toronto graduate or a younger student who would like to start planning for the future, then Next Steps is for you. Participation is free.

Not an Arts and Science Student?

A number of spaces for students from other faculties and schools have been reserved.

Recent Alumni?

If you’re a recent alum interested in advice and support, you’re more than welcome to attend. Register as a delegate and attend the whole conference or simply come to the Alumni-Student Networking Event.


Alumni Volunteers

Volunteers are the strength of this conference. Come share your experience and insights; volunteer as a panelist, speaker or career ambassador. Younger alumni who have recently entered the workplace are especially in demand. Your story can be deeply meaningful to students planning their next steps. To volunteer as an Alumni Ambassador at the Alumni and Student Networking Reception on Friday, January 19th, please register here. If you have any questions about volunteering at the Conference, please email Carlo Siochi at
