Are you hiring and struggling to find employees that are a great fit? Are you familiar with work-integrated learning, or would you like to learn more? Are you drawn to the idea of hiring a co-op or internship student but concerned about investing time and resources in a temporary hire?

North Island College and Vancouver Island University are co-facilitating a mini-workshop series to help bridge the gap between employers and student job seekers. We are excited to share information about Vancouver Island Work-integrated Learning (VIWIL), our new collaborative partnership created to help employers connect with students from both institutions in all regions north of the Malahat.

This workshop will clarify how to connect with student talent, how work-integrated learning programs function, and the benefits of hiring a work-integrated learning student…including those you may not be aware of. We are keen to connect with you, share resources and funding opportunities, address your questions and concerns, and learn about how to better support you with your hiring needs.
