The UNBF Summer Employment Program is a project funded by the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour. The intention of this program is to provide students with employment related to their skills and education. Approved jobs aim to enhance the students' employment prospects upon completion of their studies, while enabling them to finance the continuation of their education.

The program is designed to assist undergraduate students from under-represented groups (aboriginals, persons with disabilities, low-income earners, first generation post-secondary learners, young females and youth from rural communities) with the high costs associated with post-secondary education.

UNBF Summer Employment Program positions are 36.25 hours per week for 12 weeks students will be paid $13.00 per hour plus vacation, holiday pay =$14.04 per hour. Project holders are responsible to contribute $5.40 per hour to the salary of the student. The cost to project holders will be calculated as:

12 weeks x 36.25 hours per week x $5.40 per hour = $2,349.00

This program will be administered by Career Development and Employment Service and Financial Aid.

The objectives are:
•    To help students with demonstrated financial need
•    To provide students with career-related job experiences
•    To provide students with career guidance and employment readiness skills through: Mandatory Resume and Cover Letter Writing Workshops, and the Career Development Certificate Program
•    To provide UNB departments, faculty, and staff with student employees at subsidized labour costs.
