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.

Job boards are maintained at each campus and businesses are invited to contact the Employment Counsellor with details of job openings they would like to post.
