      It's Time to Start Thinking About Summer

      Now that you’re settled into your semester, it is time to think ahead: where will you be working this summer? Summer jobs can help you develop skills, make connections, and earn some cash! If you don’t have anything lined up yet, here are some tips for how to find a summer job.


      Networking is a crucial strategy to build connections and relationships in your target industry. Let your friends, colleagues, and connections know that you are on the lookout for a summer position – many will want to help you, and you never know what will turn up! 

      Make sure you attend our Summer Job Fair on February 7, 2018. Employers come to the Summer Job Fair because they want to hire students. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and create connections. 

      Online Research

      Explore job postings on our website. We post part-time and full-time jobs for a variety of fields. 

      There are also many employment search engines available online. They can be valuable to students, depending on the type of work you are seeking. For example, Jobkin, Indeed, or WowJobs can be a good place to start. Employment opportunities may also be posted on LinkedIn. 

      Student Summer Job Programs

      There are many programs that are specifically designed for university students seeking summer jobs. Take advantage of them! Check out programs like Federal Student Work Experience Program, Summer Temporary Employment Program, or the Government of Alberta Student Summer Employment Registration Service.

      While you are researching positions, perfect your resume and cover letter or LinkedIn page, or practice your interview skills with an appointment at the Career Centre!
