The Centre for Career Action acknowledges that our work is on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our institution is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.The active work by the University of Waterloo toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
We have several ways to guide you in your job search
Meet potential employers
Employer information sessions: Employers regularly visit campus to recruit Waterloo students. Often, there are several employers on campus in a single day. Although employers sometimes choose to target master's students and PhDs, they more often target co-op students and undergrads in specific fields. Nevertheless, our Graduate Career Advisors strongly urge you to register for and attend any info session hosted by an employer that interests you. These info sessions are a great opportunity for you to meet a representative of a potential employer, get their business cards, and practice your five-minute elevator pitch.
Search job postings on WaterlooWorks
WaterlooWorks: Students often think that WaterlooWorks is only for co-op jobs - however, employers often recruit "graduating students" and grad students. Grad students and postdocs should apply for both! Learn more about using WaterlooWorks to find non-co-op jobs.
