Job Search

Self-Developed Jobs

If you already know the type of position or specific company that would be a stepping-stone towards your career goals, you may choose to pursue a self-developed job.

The majority of our students pursue self-developed jobs. Students who have been successful finding their own employment usually refer to and build upon their networks in order to gain opportunities. Although pursuing self-developed jobs can be more work, there are valuable skills to be gained that will be beneficial beyond graduation.

Job descriptions for self-developed jobs must be submitted to your Career and Recruitment Specialist for approval. Self-developed jobs must be business-specific and meet our accreditation requirements.

Successfully found employment for your work term?

Make sure to create your Work Term Record. Detailed instruction on this can be found in the myCareer student guide.
