How can I post a job?

To post a job in our employment database, simply forward a digital copy of your posting to us directly at engineering.employment@ualberta.ca. Our useful Job Posting Tips will help you put together an effective job description that will attract high-quality, experienced candidates.

How can I arrange on-campus interviews?

Once you've identified the candidates you would like to interview, you can forward your list of candidates, along with your preferred interview time(s) and date(s), as well as any special requirements you might have to engineering.employment@ualberta.ca. One of our Employment Coordinators will contact you to confirm the information and begin inviting students to the interview.

How can I book an information session?

To book an information session simply contact us at engineering.employment@ualberta.ca with your name, company name, and contact information and one of our Employment Coordinators will be in touch with you to make all the necessary arrangements.

I need to hire someone right away. Do you have a resume database that we can access? 

Unfortunately, we do not maintain a database of student and alumni resumes. The Engineering Employment Centre links employers and prospective applicants by posting specific employment opportunities in our database. Our students and alumni are then invited to apply to opportunities that interest them.

How can the EEC help us handle a large number of applications?

Email applications can quickly fill your inbox — let us help you manage this by collecting applications on your behalf. Using our employment database, we can collect applications from interested parties until the posted closing date, and then submit the entire package to you in a PDF document.
