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. 

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.

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.

The NRC Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) Youth Employment Program also provides small and medium-sized enterprises with financial assistance to hire highly skilled post-secondary graduates. 

Career Fair

Showcase your company at the Computer Science Career Fair and encourage students to submit resumes and ask questions. This career fair is organized by the Computer Science Students’ Society every winter. Companies are also encouraged to participate in the Career Expo, a campus-wide career fair organized by the University of Saskatchewan for students from various disciplines. 

NSERC Industrial Undergraduate Student Research Award (IUSRA)

The NSERC IUSRA provides financial support to help companies hire an undergraduate-level student to undertake a research project or a co-op placement. These awards are designed to give students practical experience in an industrial setting that complements their studies. Two-thirds of companies reported their student helped them increase research productivity or R&D capability.
