Hiring and Retaining International Graduates
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

**Important Notice: CPHR NL requires advance payment for all events by the registration deadline date.

  • Did you know that international students are eligible to work for NL employers while they are studying and also after their graduation? 
  • Did you know that there is no immigration-related paperwork involved on the employer’s part in hiring international students or graduates?

You can hire this group of talented individuals to meet your labour market needs.

International students represent the best source of potential immigrants to Newfoundland and Labrador who can help grow our population and build a stronger economy.  Currently, there are over 2,500 international students studying at our post-secondary institutions – many of whom graduate every year in various disciplines.  Each year many of them decide to live and work in our province after graduation.
