Hiring a student or young alumni on a full-time, part-time, internship, or volunteer basis is a great way for them to gain insight and experience in the working world.
Should I post my opportunity in myFuture or Workday?
All TAships, Work Study and/or casual on campus jobs should be posted both in myFuture AND Workday.
- We recommend that for all McGill student positions, you post in myFuture first. Once you have selected, interviewed and offered the position, you can then go to Workday and begin the process.
- If you post your position in Workday as an internal posting, only those students who are current employees and have a workday profile will be able to view and apply to those positions. All McGill students who are not currently a McGill student employee and do not have a workday profile will not have access to viewing nor applying to these postings.
- Positions which are posted under the external candidate link will be visible to all prospective candidates. Therefore, if you are looking to hire uniquely a McGill student and not someone from the general public, the external candidate link will not restrict their applications.
