In light of the current COVID-19 environment, YNCN is still committed to meeting the needs of employers and students alike, while following all safety and precautionary measures. We’re excited to announce that all our events, including our career fairs, will be running virtually this fall.

Who We Are

You’re Next Career Network is a multi-disciplinary team of over 40 student volunteers. We work to provide opportunities to students through career development programs, as well as corporate and startup career opportunities. Working with over 3000 students and 100 companies a year, we aim to continue bringing exciting opportunities to the students of U of T.



The Leadership Team

We are parental figures to over 40 students who are all passionate about professional development! We aim to foster an ecosystem in which students help each other take control of their careers, and are driven to connect employers with top engineering talent at UofT.

The Digital Launchpad Team

Hey there, welcome to Digital Launchpad! We are the techies, design nerds, and content creators of YNCN, here to lead the digital transformation of the organization from the inside out. Within YNCN, we like to think of ourselves as our own mini tech startup - always creating and innovating, hacking out new ideas and pushing each other to learn new skills along the way. We’re a fun bunch who believe in the power of Agile, a work-hard-play-hard mindset, and last but definitely not least, karaoke. Yeah, you read that right.

Our focus this year is to look for ways in which technology can be used to improve YNCN’s internal/external processes and, ultimately, the student experience. If you have any wild ideas, pressing questions, or would just like to know more about our team, feel free to shoot us a message - we’ll be glad to chat.
