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 card, and practise 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.
