How to Find Your First Canadian Job?

By Conestoga College Modified on March 13, 2018

Land a job before you graduate!


Amadeu is from Brazil. He graduated from the Financial Planning Services program and landed his job as a Business Advisor at a major Canadian bank right before graduation.

“I was thrilled to receive a job offer from RBC Bank two months prior to graduation. I had a fantastic return on my Conestoga investment, as I was able to recover my full tuition and other expenses within my first seven months of working! I got this opportunity due to one of the meetings with potential employers that Conestoga College promotes yearly.

When I was searching for a College, I wanted to study in a well-recognized institution which would quickly prepare me to land a good job as soon as I graduate. All the professors have work experience in the industry, their academic background is fully backed up by knowledgeable experts willing to share their professional experiences.”
