  • I followed the first-time user instructions in the User's Guide but I still can't access PlacePro. How can I access the system?

    The login instructions in the User's Guide are for first-time users only. If these instructions are not working for you, it's possible you've previously completed the first-time user login procedure and have forgotten your login information!

    If you think this might be the case for you, try to retrieve your login information using the Forgot Password? link available on the student login page. You will be asked for your email address and the access code uofaeng. After submitting this information, PlacePro will email your login information to you.

    If this solution does not work for you, contact us at engineering.employment@ualberta.ca for assistance. Be sure to mention your ONEcard number and full name in your email, and if you've receved a system error message, include that in your message as well.

  • How do I upload transcripts to PlacePro?

    Unofficial transcripts are suitable for employment application purposes, and can be downloaded from your Bear Tracks account. This file can be uploaded to your PlacePro profile for inclusion in application portfolios as required by potential employers.

    Please view our PlacePro User's Guide (PDF) for more information on how to create an application portfolio in PlacePro.

    For more information and instructions on how to download your unofficial transcripts from the University of Alberta, please visit the Office of the Registrar.

  • I applied to a posting through PlacePro, but the icons in PlacePro have not been updated to indicate that my application has been sent to the company. When will my documents be sent to the employer?

    For traditional engineering students and all alumni, the icons in PlacePro do not reflect the status of a posting or your application for employment with a company.

    Follow-up on your application will depend on how you submitted your application:

    If you submitted an application by clicking "Apply" in your PlacePro account, contact the EEC after the deadline for the posting has passed.

    If you submitted an application directly to a company, either by email or online through the company website / applicant tracking system, contact the Human Resources department of the company.
