Jobs for Grads

Jobs for Grads is our name for the exclusive access graduates can obtain to full time job listings graduates can find in CLN, as well as ongoing access to our workshops, and employer events on campus to help graduating students and recent graduates find full time employment. Users maintain access to this service for 2 years beyond their convocation date.

Who is eligible? All graduate students, U of T students with 14+ credits, students graduating in this calendar year, and recent graduates (within 2 years of convocation).

How can I register? Attend a mandatory Jobs for Grads orientation session. The workshop is a job search “crash course” and gets great reviews from students! Registration as well as information on upcoming dates can be found by logging into CLN and viewing the Events & Workshops in Scarborough calendar.

NOTE: As employers are typically seeking degreed students (or impending degreed students), students who are completing graduate degrees (Master’s, doctoral, and postdoctoral) receive automatic access to Jobs for Grads and are exempt from attending an orientation session, but you are welcome to attend for the learning!

By attending a Jobs for Grads orientation session you will be able to:

  • Access thousands of full time job postings from organizations looking to hire U of T students as they graduate
  • Employ traditional and strategic job search strategies to tap into the hidden job market
  • Gain continued access to special events at all three campuses, including networking events with industry professionals and recruiters, on-campus interviews, and employer information sessions
  • Continue to access other Academic Advising & Career Centre services, including resume & LinkedIn profile critiques, mock interviews, career & employment related workshops, self-assessments, employment coaching, and career counselling appointments
