"I applied for a part-time student job through a commercial job site and didn't hear anything back. I applied for the exact same job in MyFuture and heard back very quickly about an interview and got hired! Applying via MyFuture gives your application the Queen's stamp of approval and an added reassurance to hiring managers. My advice to any Queen's student is to get on MyFuture!" Deepali Pathania
