Finding work

Who is the Business Development Office (BDO)?

Students come to Yorkville University with a path and a purpose in mind for their career. The Business Development Office is here to help them realize that goal in a meaningful way!

Yorkville University’s Business Development Office (BDO) aims to connect graduates with promising and career-focused employment opportunities. This is done through partnerships and business alliances created with employers across Canada.

The Business Development Office is a team of experienced job placement experts, known as Industry Liaisons, who offer free recruitment services to employers, gaining access to the hidden job market where most jobs are found. The BDO successfully uses this outreach strategy to place graduates within their chosen field. They also help Yorkville University students find part-time jobs while pursuing their studies.
