We have updated the career information on the FAQ page of our website. It can be found under the About Us tab at the top of our website. Or you can find it here:
How do I find Engineering jobs and plan my career?
The Student Employment and Career Centre provides services to current students and alumni to help them transition from education to career. Visit the SECC website for more information on services and programs that might be of interest to you.
The SECC’s job posting system, CareerLink, is a great place to look for summer, part-time, volunteer and full-time jobs. Set up specific search criteria that match your interest area and sign up to receive an email notification each time a new job that matches your criteria is posted.
Engineering employers recruit on campus in September and in January. Employers can start hiring in September for jobs that begin the following summer! Campus Career Expo, the largest multi-discipline career fair on campus, happens the third Wednesday of September. Many Engineering employers will be at Expo, so be sure to go to this event.Watch the SECC calendar of events for employer information sessions which usually take place in September and January. Attend these sessions to meet with recruiters, learn more about companies and find out what employment opportunities are out there.
Your Resume – Make it work for you
Your resume is one of your first opportunities to market yourself to employers. Get involved on campus and in your community by becoming a member of the SESS, volunteering, attending conferences and participating in a variety of activities. This will help build your resume and help set you apart from other students who are applying for the same jobs as you are. Remember, employers hire from multiple universities, so you want your resume to stand out! Consider attending a ResumeTalk session at the SECC to have someone look over your resume and cover letter.
Engineering Professional Internship Program (EPIP)
Do you have limited work experience? Participate in the Engineering Professional Internship Program (EPIP) to gain 8, 12 or 16 months of professional engineering work experience. EPIP is a great way to get work experience in the engineering industry, earn a competitive salary, build your resume and gain credit hours towards your P.Eng designation. Students may apply between their third and forth year of study. Check the College of Engineering website for details on EPIP and important deadlines.
The SESS will be hosting final exam tutorial sessions for the following classes for December final exams:

Thanks everyone for your patience as we rinse out the remaining bugs from our site. We have reinstalled all the software, removed a bunch of clutter, and trained our staff on how the IT stuff works.
This week the SESS is undergoing renovations to our office and store. Our executive will still be maintaining office hours, however they will be stationed in the lounge near the E Store window. They are still more than happy to assist you with store sales and general information!
As always, if you feel out of the loop because of the I.T. outage or for any other reason, please drop by the “field office” in the lounge, send any of us an email or feel free to browse the website once again!
Applications for the National Conference on Women in Engineering are now out!
As NCWIE is being hosted by our university this year we will be sending 15 delegates this year!
Applications can be found on the brown thing and are due Oct 8th at 5PM in the VP External mailbox in the SESS office.
