Job Description Gallery

Welcome to the Job Description Gallery

Each department has created sample job descriptions for a range of entry level student positions to give students the opportunity to see the types of positions available and the skills and experiences of interest to an employer. A job description provides insight into the position, and organization and is incredibly valuable in creating a targeted cover letter/application and interview preparation.

In the Co-operative Education Program these job descriptions are available for students to practice creating cover letters and to prepare for practice interviews.
