What is this program?
Recent graduates are in need of some assistance when it comes to preparing for the workplace and accessing work opportunities that will help them take the first steps in their careers. As such, the Career Centre offers the Recent Graduate Opportunities Program (RGOP). The RGOP creates a cohort of undergraduate candidates that will work alongside career coaches in both group and one-to-one settings to develop the skills needed to transition from the classroom to the workplace. Once candidates complete the mandatory components of the program, they are then presented with various paid work placements at organizations across the GTA.
For employers, we are offering you early access to a talent pool of candidates who are ready to take on their first job. If you need candidates to fill a need in your office (ex. starting or completing a project, replacing a current employee on leave etc.), we can help! The Career Centre will recruit, interview, and vet candidates for you. Once our process is complete, we will provide you with the most suitable candidates for your vacancies.
Is this an official co-op / internship?
The Recent Graduate Opportunities Program is not an official co-op or internship program as the candidates enrolled have already graduated.
