Internship Information Sessions
Before applying to a York Internship Program, students must attend an Internship Information Session, which are offered throughout the year. During the session, the Internship Coordinator provides an overview of the program, academic eligibility requirements, application fees, job search processes and program expectations.
Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter workshop
Before gaining access to exclusive internship job postings, students must attend a mandatory Perfecting Your Internship Resumé & Cover Letter workshop. During this workshop, students will be provided with information about the application process and resumé and cover letter writing techniques.
Every year employers hiring interns and other positions come to campus to recruit. Connect with these employers who can answer your questions about their organization’s culture, career opportunities, what skills and experience they’re seeking and how you can apply. Employer Recruitment Sessions take place during employers’ recruitment cycles which typically start as early as the first week of September and run until late November. Sessions are held again from mid-January through the end of March.
For upcoming sessions, visit the Employer Recruitment Session page on the Career Centre website.
Internship Panel Sessions
During the year, the Career Centre hosts panel sessions where potential interns can interact with current and past interns and employers and learn about their experiences with the Internship Programs. These sessions provide great opportunities to ask questions and network.
