Advising

Looking for work is one of the toughest jobs out there! As you set out to achieve your employment goals, it helps to have access to information and assistance. Whether you are looking for access to job postings, employer events or support in your job search we are here to help.

We can help open the door to a world of possibilities! Our free employer services draw many employers who post a wide variety of positions, which ensures a constant supply of interesting job opportunities for you. Then, we make sure that they are accessible to you 24/7 through the myCampus. Unlike other job posting systems, the employers who use these services understand that we are promoting students and new graduates, which means that you will spend your job search time looking for employers who are looking for you!

Career Services Portal - Job Postings for Students, Graduates and Employers

Job postings are accessible through a new Career Services portal.

Through this portal, students and graduates can set up an account and view job postings. Employers can set up an account and post job descriptions for new positions.

Supporting You in Your Job Search

Students can use our job search resources to help create professional resume and cover letters. In addition, we are glad to look at your resume and covering letters, to provide helpful feedback and suggestions. This will ensure that, when you are contacting employers in writing, you are making the best possible impression.

Interviews can be a pretty intense and nerve racking experience. When preparing for interviews, our students are able to access helpful tips on how to put their best foot forward. For those who would like to walk through the process, we offer one-on-one "mock" interviews. Students tell us that the feedback they get after the "mock" interview is very helpful, not only to understand how they would come across to the interviewer, but also helps them to know what to expect in the all-important real interview.

Recruitment Events

Wouldn't it be great if we brought the employers to your door? We frequently invite employers to visit on campus to give them an opportunity to meet students. Many hold information sessions, and some even interview and hire on the spot! This can be a great opportunity for you to network in an environment where you feel comfortable.

Be sure to check out our annual Job Fair that takes place each February. Typically this event draws about 50 employers and over 150 company representatives who are scouting for your skills and talents, as a Fleming student or graduate.

Field Placement/Work Term

Approximately 40 programs at Fleming College's Sutherland Campus contain a varying lengths of field placement. This provides a valuable opportunity for students to apply skills learned in the classroom to real work settings. Employers gain benefit from having students who bring up-to-date knowledge and fresh new ideas, so it becomes a win-win situation.

To find out if your chosen program includes a field placement/work term component, visit our academic program pages. If you have questions related to the field placement in a specific program, please contact the program coordinator.

Don't Wait Until You Graduate

Looking toward your future, we can also help you to become prepared for the exciting career opportunities that await you after graduation. We know that the students who begin to plan for their careers early are the ones who are the most successful and we are here to provide support along the way.

When you become a graduate of any Fleming College program, you are welcome to take advantage of the services for graduates and alumni, to help you succeed with your long term career plans.

Graduate Placement Report

This report is based on employment statistics, as reported by graduates, conducted by Forum Research, through the authority of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

The graduate employment information is collected and reported, for a one-week period of time referred to as a "REFERENCE WEEK". The Reference Week occurs approximately 6 months after graduation and is selected by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

Please note that "Reference Week" data does not take into consideration any graduate employment that may have occurred outside this period of time. Given that the Reference Week data is for a set, one-week period, it may be affected by seasonal/situational fluctuations and trends in recruitment cycle of employers in certain industries. For further discussion on factors that impact upon graduate employment, or to get more information on graduated employment within a 6-month period of time after graduation, please contact Fleming Data Research or Career Services at 705-749-5530.
