Targeted degrees and disciplines

WaterlooWorks offers advertising clusters to help you target your job posting to students from specific program degrees and disciplines. Clusters help you to find students that are best suited for your job based on their expertise. You will find the advertising clusters listed in the Targeted Degrees and Disciplines section of your job posting.
