An internship in Montreal can really impact a student’s semester by providing local contacts, professional experience, additions to portfolios or resumes, and a place to learn more about the culture of Montreal! Those interested in internships can specify this on the Champlain Abroad online application system. The Montreal staff will actively work alongside students and the Burlington Campus to identify internship opportunities in the city. However, it is important to understand that the student is ultimately responsible for learning about opportunities in the city, doing research on the various companies and industries here in Montreal.
Interns vary in discipline, and have included profiles in international business, marketing, graphic design, management, film, game programming, game design, game art, professional writing, networking & cyber-security, computer science, and information technologies.
Interns in Montreal are eligible for work through the SWAP “Work in Canada” program provided by the program of International Exchange of North America (www.iena.org). It is very important that all interested potentials be in touch with the Office of International Education on the Burlington Campus to ensure that the proper immigration documents are filed in a timely manner.
Students may also choose to pursue full-time internship possibilities during the summer terms in Montreal.
For more information please contact Noah Goldblatt at the Office of International Education or Gigi Danforth at the Montreal Campus.
