Employers are key partners in helping our students build their future careers. The Centre for Experiential and Career Education (CECE) offers employers various forms of recruitment services to build connections with students and alumni on and off campus. Here’s how CECE can help you meet with candidates to find your next hire, build your organization’s brand, and lend your expertise within the UFV community:

Opportunities to connect with students
Hire a student from the Co-operative Education (Co-op) program
Access a pool of eager, motivated, and talented UFV Co-op students for your short and long-term human resources needs. Co-op combines academic studies with relevant work experience. Academic semesters alternate with work terms, giving students up to two years of relevant work experience. Visit Hire a Co-op Student for more information.
Post job or volunteer opportunities on CareerLink

CareerLink, our self-serve online job board, allows you to reach a large student and alumni talent pool looking for work. Visit CareerLink for Employers for full details on how to create an account and post your opportunities.
