The Student Employment Experience Development (SEED) program provides an access point for services related to summer employment. These services include familiarizing employers with labour market trends regarding the needs and job search trends of students seeking employment. The end goal is to provide resources that facilitate a connection with between employers and students resulting in a positive summer employment experience.

A few points employers should note before applying:

1. Provided an employer meets the criteria for the program (see application form), the job posting will be reviewed and posted here: www.nbseed.ca. The posting of your job ad confirms your eligibility for the program. You are free to start your recruitment process at that time.

In order to hire a summer student that would best fit your needs and in order to make sure you provide the most up-to-date information on your job ad, we recommend that you don’t list the SEED eligibility criteria directly on your job posting. Instead, we suggest that you refer applicants to the SEED website at www.NBseed.ca for more information on the SEED program. The eligibility criteria will be listed there.

2. The SEED program is designed to provide an incentive for employers to hire a summer student but there is no guarantee they will receive qualified applicants through the program. Finding qualified candidates and deciding to hire them is up to the employer.

3. Ideally, the SEED program should provide an opportunity for students with little (or no) work experience who have not worked for the employer before. Since their position is subsidized, it may help an employer hire additional summer employees and provide a good experience for those having difficulty finding summer employment. This benefits the employer as they develop relationships with youth who they may wish to hire in the future.

How it works:


1. If you are new to the SEED program or have experienced some issues with attracting students to your organization, you may wish to click the "Employer Resources" button on the right. This is a five step orientation process to show the resources that are available to you as you post your summer job positions. The SEED application will be available at the end of the orientation.



                  


2. If you are comfortable with the fact that your organization will receive many qualified candidates through the program and don’t feel you need any support for now, you can go directly to the SEED application page and post your job ad(s). You can always revisit the Employer Resources here.
