Employer Participation Statistics

From September 2020 to September 2021 Careers and Work Integrated Learning posted a total of 1,450 job postings for over 500 employers.

Note that the volume of job postings does not necessarily reflect the overall activity associated with recruitment by employers on campus. Many companies are far more active on their own with recruitment activities and do not specifically post their jobs on campus sites, or they provide one job posting which directs candidates to their website where a large volume of jobs exist. Our data does not necessarily reflect all the jobs available to our students, as additional jobs may be listed on company websites exclusively.
