If you’re a post-secondary student looking for summer work, it’s not too late.
Maria Trujillo, coordinator of UNBC’s Student Career Centre, says she’s still being approached every day by employers with full and part-time summer job postings.
“In January we had about 150 postings and then in February, it slows down a little bit,” Trujillo says. Now just over 60 part-time and full-time student jobs are posted on UNBC’s website.
Allen Creuzot, Residential Housing Professional with Creuzot Homes, says working on projects like the Creekside Properties gives students a lot of opportunities. They learn what they like and don’t like, while making good money.
“From an employer point of view, it’s good to get them started more on the bottom end, doing some labouring and cleaning up and whatnot just to get them into the construction field,” Creuzot says.
