St. Lawrence College provides a variety of career and employment-related services in our community.
Our Career Services provides employment supports to current College students on all three campuses. The College also operates three Employment Ontario sites (Kingston, Sharbot Lake, and Ottawa) that provide services for residents in those communities. To support both the Career and Employment Services, the College operates the region’s largest job board. If you are looking to hire or looking for employment opportunities, visit the SLC job board.
"The service was exemplary and I was quick to replace tension with hope and every session left me feeling more confident and closer to my dream job. Tara made my transition smoother and I got my first managerial job after just 10 months in Canada, working as a branch manager with a staffing firm. I think the work that Tara and her team are doing goes a long way in adding value to people’s lives and more importantly helping people actualize their dreams and aspirations."
"Thanks again to St. Lawrence College - Employment Services Ottawa for your support and the role you played. You helped make it all work out for the best with finding employment, with your valuable advice."
"Every time I walked into St. Lawrence Employee centre, emailed, or called, Namakau was smiling, super-nice, and super active. She would make as many calls as possible to get someone on the phone to refer me to. She was quickly searching for a job available and refer me to it. I got a permanent job in my field of study during Covid-19."
"I have a job offer! I could just cry! I turn 40 on Saturday and let me tell you, getting a non-retail job in Kingston has been one of my greatest challenges since returning from the Caribbean - thank you for all of your help!"
"I now have a full-time job at Anchor Concrete. Initially I was hired as purchasing specialist, then laid off for 6 weeks due to Covid-19. Then asked to return to work to learn how to schedule production of the plant as well as purchasing. It’s super busy but I absolutely love it. St. Lawrence has helped me so much after such a loss of losing my job and to being able to have the awesome people to guide me back into the work force."
"I have been approved for training by St Lawrence College twice and both of my applications were such a pleasant experience. Yvonne's turnaround time was quick and it was a pleasure to work with her. She also did her research in looking for similar courses that would also be suitable that were similar in nature to the course I was recommending. I look forward to working with you with St Lawrence College and I would recommend them to my colleagues who are also in the non-profit sector."

"I chose the Employment Services at SLC because I simply could not find any other provider that has all the tools required to assist us in our search. We developed an instant relationship with one of the Employment Consultants and it was evident that her expertise and dedication was going to bring new opportunities for our company. Her detailed approach helped us to complete all the necessary forms and applications with ease, allowing us to maintain focus on our day to day business operations."
