Companies in Alberta’s technology sector are growing, which means there’s a need for qualified talent. Internships now go far beyond fetching coffee and grunt work as individuals re-enroll to diversify their skill sets. For each intern, there’s a learning opportunity to land a full-time job, and for employers there’s the potential to add the role full time.  Regardless of your goals, internships help grow Alberta’s skilled workforce and economy.
