Student information regarding employment

The Work Integrated Learning and Career Education Centre will make every reasonable effort to screen job postings that are submitted for approval.

As the applicant, it is important for you to do your due diligence when applying for employment through the Career Education Centre job board or any other job board.

Part of due diligence is to research employers using multiple websites, which are designed to help applicants in the job search process.

Research

It is recommended that before accepting an offer for an interview or employment, you research the company using these recommended websites:

  • Glassdoor

    Glassdoor allows applicants to search for company ratings and reviews, free of charge

  • Service Alberta

    Using the search engine, find out if a business is provincially licensed or registered in Alberta

Clinicals are wonderful because they give you real-life experience as a nurse that you can’t get in a classroom or lab. It allows you to explore different areas of nursing and helps you develop your skills. This experience helps you grow into the nurse you aspire to be.
