The Kingston Economic Development Corporation, in collaboration with Queen’s University, is pleased to invite you to our official launch of the 2023 Queen’s Career Apprenticeship: Kingston (QCA:K) program on Thursday November 3 at 5:30 pm at the Old Stones room at the Four Points by Sheraton.
This is your opportunity to find out more details about QCA:K – the program connects new graduates from the arts, humanities and social science disciplines within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queens University with a Kingston employer. The objective is to help new graduates launch their career while retaining skilled talent in the community. Employers who commit to a 12-month contract with a participant are reimbursed for 4 months of the gross salary to a maximum of $2,500 per month.
Students are already engaged and excited about this year’s program. Direct outreach this fall has garnered a list of potential opportunities that they are looking for, including Project Management, Writing (Copy, Grant, Technical, Journalism), Planning and Event Coordination, Business Development, Content Creation, Marketing and Communications, Research and Data Analysis, Recreation and Tourism, Operations Coordination, Customer Service and Public Relations to name just a few.
Since it’s inception in 2018, the QCA:K program’s investment of $400,000 has generated $2.5 million in ongoing salaries within the Kingston community. In 2023, the program will fund up to 15 positions. The launch event is a fantastic opportunity to see how your company can secure one of the positions and keep some of the amazing Queen’s talent in Kingston!
Please RSVP to join us on November 3!
