Student information about employment

The Career 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 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

We recommend that you research the company before accepting an offer for an interview or employment using these websites:

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

  • Service Alberta - find out if a business is provincially licensed or registered in Alberta using the search engine

Job ad scams

Unfortunately there are scammers out there that prey upon people looking for work. If you would like to learn more about common job ad scams or if you feel like you may have been approached about a job that is a scam, visit these websites to learn how to protect yourself:

Legitimate Canadian job ads will not ask for any banking or personal information and this information should never be shared.
