Career and Workforce Development Services

At other schools, Career Services is an office that you can go and visit…

At MITT, career education is a part of everything we do!

How is MITT Career Development Services different than other institutions?

At MITT, career education is part of your curriculum. People choose MITT because we offer short-term programs that lead to employment, and we want to make the transition to your career is as easy as possible.  We also listen to employers, and responded by enhancing our services to ensure students are able to find meaningful employment after graduation.

Career Development Services delivers four in-class Work Skills Sessions in every program, focusing on:

  • Employability skills and Employer Expectations
  • Tailoring your resume to your program – resumes that get results
  • Interview Skills – marketing yourself
  • Transition to work – how to get the job and then excel in your career

MITT offers all the services and supports other schools do; we just do more!

Additional career services and supports:

  • Work-integrated learning and practicum opportunities within most of our programs
  • Job postings from employers emailed directly to current students and alumni
  • One-on-one career decision making support to prospective students, current students and alumni

We also support current students and alumni with:

  • Resume and cover letter development
  • Job search techniques
  • Interview skills, mock interviews and networking support

Career decision support

It can be hard to decide on your future career. Post-secondary education costs money, and takes time – you want to feel confident about your decision. The staff in MITT Career Development Services love helping people make career decisions!

Whether you are a prospective students, current student or alumni, meet with one of our Career Development Services staff in-person, by phone or online to talk about your career and your next steps! We don’t just talk about MITT programs – we help you make the right decision for you, even if that means choosing a different institution.

MITT scholarships and bursaries, student loans

We know that funding for school isn’t always accessible for students. That’s why MITT provides direct paths to bursaries and scholarships, which help alleviate the cost of tuition and materials, as well as living expenses. MITT’s scholarship and bursaries team also provides information on external funding opportunities.

Entrance Scholarships

Throughout Manitoba and across Canada, there are many organizations that sponsor scholarships for students. Future and current MITT students are encouraged to research and apply for every scholarship and award opportunity where they meet some or all of the selection criteria. For a full list of entrance scholarships and search tools, please visit MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards

MITT Bursaries

MITT provides bursaries to assist our technical and trades program students meet their living costs while studying full-time. Bursaries are offered in the Fall and Winter each year. For more details and deadlines, please visit MITT Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards

Student Loans

The ideal situation for a student is to cover their tuition and living costs with personal savings and/or family support. This is ideal, but not always possible. However, lack of financial support should not be a barrier to entering full-time studies.

The next best option to help students cover their expenses while studying is a government student loan issued through their province of residence and the Government of Canada.

“I don't want to be in debt when I graduate. I will just keep my job while studying.” Our experience shows that more than 15 hrs/week at a job dramatically reduces the amount of time available for study and success in an MITT program. Finances, time management and successful grades are closely related and one usually impacts the other. A government loan provides a student money but also time to study.

Where to Apply

Students must submit their loan application to their province of residence. Manitoba residents can apply online at www.studentaid.gov.mb.ca. Students from other provinces can find their online application with a quick Google search.

For further information, students can also visit the Canada Student Loans website at www.canlearn.ca.

When To Apply

Students should apply for their loan as early as possible or approximately 2 months before the first day of class. Applying late is not a major problem, but late applications might result in not paying tuition on time or not being able to afford living expenses until later.

Manitoba Student Aid typically posts the online application for the fall/winter school year in early June.

High School Partnership Program

For more than 30 years MITT has offered students in partner school divisions the opportunity to split their time between part-time technical training at the College and completion of their academic courses at their home high school.

Today, we are proud to offer six technical program options to students in: Louis Riel School Division, Pembina Trails School Division, Division scolaire franco-manitobaine (DSFM), Red River Valley School Division, as well as our unique French Electrical/Électricité program to French-speaking students.

Seats are limited. If you are a student in a partner school division and interested in taking technical training at MITT, please contact a counselor at your high school to learn more about eligibility and the application process.
