Employer: Understand program and theme clusters

In WaterlooWorks, advertising clusters are a way for employers to target the type of students they believe would be best suited for the job without having to know/understand our many different programs. Every advertising cluster is associated with one or more academic plans, and every academic plan is associated with multiple advertising clusters.

There are two types of advertising clusters for employers to choose from: 

Advertising clusters can assist a student in their job search activities in various ways:

  • Use the quick search 'Jobs for my Program' to provide a list of all jobs that has advertising clusters that their program is associated with
  • Use the advanced search to provide a list of jobs that are associated with a specific advertising cluster(s)
  • Use the advanced search to provide a list of jobs that are associated with a specific academic plan(s)
