Do you have work that needs to get done but you don’t have the staff or time to do it? Do you have a project that you need help with on a short term basis? Are you trying to build a strong talent pipeline? If so, then perhaps a post-secondary student may be able to help! Post-secondary students can be a great temporary talent resource for businesses; they can bring innovative ideas and valuable skills to your organization.
The Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce (GKWCC) Access Student Talent resources are here to help small businesses learn about working with post-secondary students and connect with our local educational partner schools: Conestoga College, University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University. Students are available for a variety of work-integrated learning opportunities including co-op work terms, capstone projects, field placements, in-class projects, apprenticeships, and others. To learn more about what work-integrated learning (WIL) is and how it can support your business, check out our resources below!
