Exploring job postings and summer experience programs
Job postings and summer experience programs are a great way to explore what is out there. But remember that not all jobs are advertised! Many are in the “hidden job market” – more about how to learn to network and find those opportunities is found in the previous section of this site, How do I find a summer job?
Remember Queen's University is now hiring for a wide range of positions too!
