Experiential opportunities infused with a Lassondian twist

Traditional Recruitment

We’ve designed a unique approach that combines the continuity of a traditional internship program with the flexibility of a co-op program. We offer continuous recruitment rather than just using a rank and match system, giving you the flexibility to post, interview, and hire students throughout each term on a first-come first-served basis.

Recruit

Recruit not only at the entry level, but at the second tier of employment. Our students will be qualified for specialist or mid-level management positions in a few years.

Grow

Build a brand reputation and mindshare as a progressive employer.

Funding

Finance your projects and students with a variety of funding programs and tax credits.

HOW IT WORKS

This program is offered to students in all engineering programs as well as Computer Science, Computer Security, Digital Media, Earth & Atmospheric Science.

Students will be guaranteed at least one work term with you; one at the end of their 2nd year (4 months) or before their 4th year (12 or 16 months).

Students may apply using our job posting database or externally. You can send us your job openings and we can maintain the postings, organize interviews, and facilitate communication on your behalf. Alternatively, you may conduct it all independently.

You provide hands-on learning making students more engaged and interested in the work experience.

HOW IT WORKS

Available exclusively to Honours Computer Science B.Sc students, they will explore their passion and build expertise as they complete their degree.
