On Campus

Alumni Employment Supports

What We Do

Established in 2000, Alumni Employment Supports (AES) provides employment assistance to graduates of the On Campus initiative. Upon completion of the program, graduates may have the opportunity to transition to AES to focus on employment, typically in an area related to their stream of study in their final years with On Campus.

How it Works

When graduates enter the Alumni Employment Supports program, they are assigned to an employment facilitator to assist with an individualized job search, on-the-job training, and employer and co-worker introductions/relationship development.

As the graduate becomes familiar with their job duties and as colleagues get to know the graduate, the Employment Facilitator gradually fades out of the workplace to ensure an authentic, natural and inclusive employment environment. However, the Employment Facilitator will remain as a point of contact for the graduate and will touch base with employers on a regular basis.

Furthermore, should the graduate require additional training, the Employment Facilitator will be available to provide this support.

Our Goal

Our mission is to locate employment relevant to the graduate’s interests and skills, and to assist with the creation of an inclusive workplace environment where the graduate can contribute as part of a team.
