Student Affairs staff members offer workshops, at various points throughout the year, on resume and cover letter writing, job search strategies, interview skills, business etiquette, career opportunities, and graduate studies.

Local, summer, and post-graduate employment opportunities are listed on the student portal, to assist students with finding work that suits their needs.

Student employment opportunities are available in various on-campus areas: Admissions, Recreation and Athletics, the Library, the Bookstore, the Learning Commons, Student Affairs, Operations, Administration, and Residence. Most on- campus job postings can be found on the student portal in the spring for students going into their second, third or fourth year of study, and over the summer for students arriving for their first year of study, preceding the Fall term. All on-campus positions are a maximum of four hours per week, or the equivalent, during the term. International students enrolled as full-time students at Quest are not required to have a work permit to work on campus.

Quest supports students in applying for a social insurance number (SIN) through Service Canada, since a Canadian SIN is required to work on or off campus in Canada.

Students who are receiving financial aid and who are eligible for on-campus employment through the Work-Study Program can find specific information here.


Students who wish to seek off-campus employment can consult the Quest portal to view select postings. Due to the intensity of studying on the Block Plan, students are generally advised to work no more than ten hours per week.
