HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT INTERNSHIPS

If you want to make some money, earn high school credits, and try out some of Alberta’s most in-demand careers, then you’ve come to the right place.

CAREERS will match you with an employer for a student internship, which is basically a short-term job that gives you hands-on experience. 

You can do this during the school year, or over the summer – no experience necessary! Not sure what kind of internship is right for you? No problem – take the first step by reaching out to us and we will help you through it.

During the program, we will provide you with:
