Employer Guidelines

The University of Toronto Career Centres serve over 80,000 students on the three U of T campuses: Mississauga, St. George (downtown) and Scarborough. We also serve alumni who have graduated within the last 2 years.

Our Mission

The mission of the Centres is to support students and recent graduates in their career planning, employment and transition to higher education. We value our collaborative relationships with employer partners who support us in these goals.

Legal & Policy Context

The Centres operate within a legislative and policy framework that safeguards the interests of the institution, our students and our employer partners. Our practice is governed by adherence to:

We require all internship postings comply with the Ontario Ministry of Labour Guidelines.

The University of Toronto Career Centres are a founding member of the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) and follow the CACEE Standards of Practice. CACEE is a national, non-profit association dedicated to facilitating the process of introducing students to employment opportunities. As a partnership of employer recruiters and career educators, its mission is to provide authoritative information, advice, and services to employers, students, and career centre personnel in the areas of career planning and student recruitment. For more information, visit the CACEE website.

Disclosure of Information

In order to support the career education of our students and maximize their ability to make informed career decisions, it is important that our employer partners disclose important details during their recruitment process.

  • Employers offering work-from-home positions must clearly state the work environment and equipment necessary for the position.
  • Organizations requiring participants to pay a fee for their participation in a volunteer opportunity, in Canada or internationally, must disclose this in the job posting.

Job Postings & Events

All positions listed with the Career Centre must include the name of the organization and a contact name. The Career Centres will not post positions for organizations that request money in the form of application fees, donations or investments, as part of the job application process. In all cases, the Career Centres reserve the right to determine which organizations are invited to attend career events and sessions.

Third-Party Recruiters

Third-party recruiters are defined as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment on behalf of others and not for their own needs.

We are committed to supporting students and recent graduates in making informed decisions about their careers and work opportunities. Third-party recruiters are requested to disclose the name of their client to the career centres and may decide if they wish to disclose the client name on the posting seen by students.

Employers who hire on behalf of privately owned schools, for teaching positions abroad, are considered third-party recruiters.

Entrepreneurial Opportunities

Employers offering entrepreneurial opportunities are eligible to post their positions on the Career & Co-Curricular Learning Network (CLNx). Organizations that engage in one or more of the following practices are considered to offer entrepreneurial opportunities:

  • Requirement of an initial investment for either a product or service, including a franchise, training session or a starter kit
  • Compensation based exclusively on commission and/or fees or percentage of sales
  • Provision of sponsorship for setting up a business for the purpose of selling products or services and/or recruiting other individuals to set up their own business

All the initial investments, such as licensing, administration or similar fees, requested from applicants, must be indicated in the job posting. The Career Centres reserve the right to request a copy of the employment contract to keep on file for students to read.

At career fairs, booth space for employers offering entrepreneurial opportunities may be limited, and granted on a first come first served basis.
