Graduating in 2022 and looking to start full-time work after you complete your studies at Laurier?

The Graduating Student Employment Service (GSES) attracts top employers looking to recruit final-year students (undergraduate and graduate students) for full-time positions that start after graduation. Employers start posting opportunities as early as this coming July/August and throughout the next year. Roles in accounting, finance, capital markets and rotational programs are some of the earliest postings, so we recommend that you prepare for your job search this spring and start actively looking for jobs in Navigator this July/August. 

Important Note: We work with employers (for-profit and not-for-profit) representing almost every employment sector in Canada; however, we can not predict when a particular employer may post with us. It is important to check Navigator for job postings regularly. In this way, you can be sure that you will not miss a job that could be of interest to you. 

To learn more about the GSES program and how to prepare for searching for a job, we invite you to attend:

GSES Orientation Session - June 15, 5:30-6:30 p.m. and June 17, 12 noon to 1 p.m.
Attend one of these orientation sessions to learn how to prepare for your job search and how to utilize the GSES program in your final year of studies at Laurier. We will provide you with information and advice for career planning and searching for work with special consideration to the impact of the pandemic on the labour market.
