Employer Services

Cumberland College strives to prepare our students to become active members of the future workforce.   We encourage our students to learn about the workplace and to investigate their career interests. Local businesses can get involved and connect with our students in a variety of ways.

Employer Panels and Classroom Presentations provide local businesses with a forum to share information and advice regarding careers in their field.

Job Shadows allow students interested in a specific field to observe or “shadow” a mentor at work.  Shadows are typically one day or less and tend to involve professional careers where hands on experience would not be possible.

Work Experience Placements enable students to develop workplace essential skills by working in an actual workplace.  The number of hours and duration of each placement is unique and is based on the student’s availability.  Students are not paid for their work.  Cumberland College carries a blanket liability policy that covers our students while on work placements.  Students also sign a Worker’s Compensation waiver through Cumberland College that indicates that the Ministry of Advance Education assumes this responsibility. 

To learn more about these options, book an appointment with an Advisor.  Appointments may be made by calling or stopping at the office location nearest you.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are happy to meet with you by telephone or online.  For in-person appointments, please remember our safety guidelines outlined on the main page of the website.  Coronavirus Information - Students
