Fall and winter job postings open for Ignite work-study program

Job postings for the 2023-24 Ignite work-study program are live on mySuccess, announces Career Development and Experiential Learning within the Office of Experiential Learning. The program is an opportunity for students to earn while they learn and gain practical work experience that will enhance their resumés for future career prospects.

Participating in the Ignite program gives students the chance to work closely with their professors, administrators, and academic peers, says Ronak Doowd, program co-ordinator in Career Development and Experiential Learning.

“The collaboration fosters a supportive environment where students can learn from professionals and contribute to the campus community simultaneously,” Doowd says. “Eligible students will have the chance to earn funds to support their education and cover some of their expenses.”

To be eligible for the Ignite program, students must:

  • Be in good academic standing (cumulative average of 60 per cent or higher and not on academic probation)
  • Have a valid social insurance number and be eligible to work on campus
  • Not be on a co-op work term in the semester they are employed in an Ignite position
  • Be registered in a minimum course load (60 per cent for domestic students, 80 per cent for international students, and 40 per cent for students with a documented permanent disability)

Applications require a resumé, potential cover letter, and schedule of availability. Students who require assistance with their resumé and cover letter are welcome to schedule an appointment with a career advisor.
