Host an Intern
Most of our diploma programs have a portion of the learning process dedicated to real world experience by way of an unpaid, practical placement. This helps our students to take the theoretical and practical education and training they have received in class and apply it to a work situation. This is a win-win opportunity for our students and you as an employer.
As the intern host, you will guide the interns using your expertise and experience but you will also benefit from their assistance as they have been well-trained by their instructors at Algonquin Careers Academy. As well you will have a feeling of pride in the contribution you are making to the student’s career progression. Finally, hosting an intern gives you the opportunity to evaluate a student during an unpaid probationary period to determine if you would like to hire them after the placement.
For the student, it provides a life changing opportunity to apply their skills in a work environment and to gain confidence in their abilities. Your guidance is invaluable to their development. The before and after are truly transformed.
Our students have their practical placement at different times throughout the year so there will always be one available to take on an internship at a time that is convenient for you. We have internships in the following programs:
- Paralegal (4 weeks)
- Law Clerk (4 weeks)
- Personal Support Worker (11 weeks)
- Pharmacy Technician (8 weeks : 4 weeks community pharmacy and 4 weeks hospital)
- Fitness and Health Promotion (3 weeks)
- Medical Laboratory Assistant/Technician (6 weeks)
- Medical Office Assistant (4 weeks)
- Business Administration (although there is not an official internship, one can be arranged)
- Accounting and Payroll (although there is not an official internship, one can be arranged)
- Travel Counsellor (2 weeks)
