What is it?

The Recent Graduate Opportunities Program (RGOP) is a placement program for undergraduate students who have recently graduated (up to 2 years after graduation). This program runs 3 times a year and will help prepare you for your first job after graduation through group work and career coaching. Not only will the program support you through your own job search but it will also give you access to exclusive short-term paid placements that you can apply for.

The goal of this program is to help you make a successful transition from the classroom to the workplace. By the end of it, you will have:

  • Understood best practices for marketing yourself to employers;
  • Expanded your network by connecting with other recent grads and industry professionals;
  • and undertaken a paid placement in an organization and gained experience for your resume

Benefits for employers

  • Gain early access to recent graduates from UTM
  • Hire candidates who have graduated from multidisciplinary programs
  • Have the support of the Career Centre in ensuring candidates have a smooth transition to the workplace
