How Does STEP Work?

When a government department wants to hire a student, they contact STEP Services and request a list of students to interview.

We search our database of student applications to find those that best match the requirements of the job (work location, specific skills, field of study, etc.).

Next, we contact you directly by phone or email, tell you about the job, and ask if you'd like to attend an interview. If you do, you're provided with a time and location for the interview.

If you're the successful candidate following the interview process, the department will contact you directly and provide further instructions.

What Kind of Work is Available?

Student jobs range from entry-level jobs to career-related positions. Clerical, labour, research, administrative positions are common.

STEP students can also gain experience working in a lab, law court, surveying fields or working at the Legislative building.

Part-time (Fall/Winter) and Full-time (Spring/Summer) work is available throughout Manitoba in both indoor office settings and outdoor work environments.
