Recruit Students

There are multiple options for employers to reach out and recuit our students. If the following services and programs do not meet your requirements or needs, please contact us directly. We would be happy to work with you.

COVID-19 Recruitment Update

Our 2021 Career Fair has been cancelled because of the pandemic. As an alternative, we are recommending that employers hold information sessions for students throughout the year to bring awareness about their companies and recruit students. We have two options for hosting information sessions: 
  1. You may host your session using your own platform (Zoom, etc.) and we can advertise it to our students through the department for no cost.
  2. The Student Employment Career Centre can provide a supportive role in hosting your session, including moderating it and advertising to students. This option will have an associated fee. More information about these Career Cafes can be found on their website: https://secc.usask.ca/employers.php

Post a Job

Computer Science makes it easy for you to post job opportunities through multiple channels, such as our student intranet, email lists and on-campus computer labs. Contact our Outreach Coordinator with your job posting and we will be sure to spread the word! In addition, the Student and Employment Career Centre offers services for employers, U of S students and alumni.

MITACS

If you're unsure what type of expertise is particularly suited to your business needs, you may find value in a partnership with Mitacs. Mitacs helps companies identify their innovation needs and matches them with academic expertise, thereby fostering cutting edge research tied to commercial outcomes.

Career Fair

Showcase your company at the Computer Science Career Fair and encourage students to submit resumes and ask questions. This career fair takes place every January. Registration will be available in the fall on CareerLink. Companies are also encouraged to participate in campus-wide career fairs organized by the University of Saskatchewan for students from various disciplines.

Hire an Intern

The Computer Science Professional Internship Program (CSPIP) allows undergraduate students to obtain 12 or 16 months of practical "on-the-job" experience with a sponsoring company prior to completing the final year of their undergraduate degree program.

Government Funding

The Government of Canada has established a number of programs that provide funding and other opportunities to potential employers. Its Youth Employment Strategy is designed to help young people, particularly those facing barriers to employment, get the information and gain the skills, work experience and abilities they need to make a successful transition into the labour market.
