Which colleges are hiring for 2019?
Universities have been busy recruiting for 2019, with the number of open positions soaring.
A report released this week by the National Association of Colleges and Employers said the number for 2019 is set to top 5.8 million, and that the number will increase significantly by the end of the year.
The number of vacancies will continue to increase at the universities, but they are targeting more positions in the coming months to fill.
Universities across Canada are now recruiting for students for a short-term stay of up to 72 hours.
The National Association for Colleges and Employment said this is expected to lead to an increase in the number and size of students attending universities over the next year.
While there are many vacancies available for students to apply for, there are still some areas where colleges have to look beyond their traditional application process.
The Association says they are seeing applications for nursing, teaching and social work positions go to applicants from outside the country, and from overseas.
“In the U.S., our students have an exceptional ability to apply to any college, whether they are from Canada, the U to the U-S., or a non-U country,” said Mark Kostelnik, President of the National Assoc.
for Colleges, Universities and Colleges Canada.
Kostelik said while the number could decrease slightly in 2019, he expects more candidates to apply and will be able to get in more places for the next academic year.
Students who apply through the National Student Employment Portal (NSEP) can find a list of colleges that are accepting applications, and more details on their application process and pay rates can be found at the NSEP website.
The Association says it’s a great time to apply because it is the perfect time to gain a taste of what it means to live in Canada.
“With a lot of the new jobs available, the Canadian economy is still very much in the middle of the world stage, and with the economy doing so well, it’s very important to stay focused and be able learn about all the great opportunities that are available to you,” said Kosteelnik.
Students looking for an alternative to living at home should look at international students.
While they can come and go as they please, international students can apply for jobs at many Canadian universities, and are not allowed to stay in their home countries.
“If you want to go to Canada, it is a good idea to go as far as possible to a Canadian university, and to look at how many other Canadians there are that are studying at the same time,” said Denny Schafer, the President of Career Learning Canada.
Schafer said many students who have studied at a Canadian institution would rather go abroad.
“For students from the United States, there is a lot that can be done in Canada that they can do to stay and see what’s going on and to make their own plans, and they’re really looking forward to that opportunity,” said Schafer.
For those interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, there’s a lot to consider.
The University of Calgary recently opened its first clinical research facility, and students are expected to apply at a later date.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is also looking to fill a number of positions in 2018.
CIHR has been looking to hire nurses, as well as health care workers.
In September, it opened its new campus in the University of Guelph, in Guelpied, Ontario.
The location is currently not open to students, but it’s expected to open later this year.
