HALIFAX, Jan. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - ADP Canada, a leading provider of human resources, payroll and benefits solutions, announced today a partnership with Eastern College to bring on-the-job experience to Halifax-based students.
Beginning today, 11 Eastern College students will start a new co-op placement at ADP's Dartmouth office following a competitive hiring process.
Working with ADP Customer Service Representatives, the students will be in a position to develop relationships with businesses across Canada and assist them in finding solutions to meet a variety of business needs.
"This is a great opportunity for our students to gain solid work experience assisting them in building their careers," says Debra Johns, Vice President, Campus Operations, Eastern College. "Their placements at ADP will give them an opportunity to roll up their sleeves and complement their education with real work experience."
The entry level positions are a starting point for these students. After completing the six week placement, which includes one week of formalized training, the students will return to school to complete their program. Upon completion, students may be offered a full-time position at ADP.
"ADP has a long track record of supporting the Halifax community, so partnering with Eastern College is a great fit," says Cindy Jeffrey, Vice President, ADP Canada. "We are one of the largest and fastest growing companies in the region and working with Eastern College gives us direct access to some of the best and brightest students in the area."
Nahda Mansour graduated from Eastern College and started working at ADP last year. "Graduating from Eastern provided me with a solid base for starting my career," says Mansour. "Working with ADP, I have access to the best business practices, I continue to learn every day and I get to work with good people. I want to continue living in the Halifax area and ADP provides me with that opportunity."
