Building relationships with employers is essential to the success of Rosedale Technical College and our graduates.  This success starts well before a student graduates and obtains a career. At Rosedale Tech, career assistance starts even before a prospective student starts class.  By leveraging employer partners in the recruitment of prospective students, individuals are able to visualize their future and understand more about potential employment opportunities. Once a student begins class, we encourage our students to begin their employment exploration to find their future career fit and build a network.

As a result, businesses that partner with trade schools can develop a pipeline of skilled workers who are ready and able to contribute to the company’s success. Therefore, by developing a relationship with trade schools you can reap many rewards, both in terms of recruiting top talent and long-term success.

As the workforce continues to evolve, Rosedale Tech can be an invaluable resource for you and your company when you’re in search of qualified workers. By establishing a partnership with us, we can offer a great way to find the talent you need.

As an employer partner, it is valuable to:

Be a Present at the College

  • Donate training items, sponsor events to provide name visibility throughout the College to prospective and current students as well as social media posts.
  • Communicate employment opportunities, feedback on student interviews and hired students (areas of success, opportunities for improvement), up-and-coming industry trends, employer events and changes.
