Hire our Graduates

Our team is here to help you recruit our teacher candidates, whether you are looking to post a job or promote your school/organization on our campus. We invite you to recruit throughout the year with many opportunities to connect with our teacher candidates in our Bachelor of Education and Diploma in Education programs and students in our Master of Education and Ph.D programs.

Our B.Ed./Dip.Ed. programs run over a 16-month period, from May to the following August. Typically, we will have 500-550 teacher candidates in the following areas: Primary & Junior (grades JK-6, some with French as a Second Language certification); Intermediate & Senior (grades 7-12: each teacher candidate will be certified in two teaching subjects, some with French); and Technological Education. We also have talented M.Ed and PhD. students who may be of interest to you.

We offer you the following options for recruiting with us:

Posting a Job

If you would like to post a vacancy with us – whether it be a teaching or teaching-related position – please contact us at ed.careers@queensu.ca.

Pop-up Booths

Your representatives can arrange to set up a table in a high-traffic area at our Faculty to connect with our teacher candidates. Pop-up tables can be booked on weekdays from September through April. Recommended timing is 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. We will work with you to determine the best time of year to reach your target audience. Contact us for more information at ed.careers@queensu.ca.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are a great way for you to connect with talented Queen’s teacher candidates. Our team will help to make the necessary arrangements, including booking a room, providing tech support, and promoting the session to teacher candidates. Contact us for more information at ed.careers@queensu.ca.

Information sessions are available Monday-Thursday and are usually scheduled during the lunch break, so all teacher candidates will have the opportunity to attend. Sessions typically last 45 minutes but can be altered depending on your needs. We will work with you to determine the best time of year to reach your target audience.
