Academic Internship Council (AIC) Toronto
The AIC is driven by a single mission: to provide academic institutions with internship/co-op programs that help their students achieve personal and professional growth and competitive advantage in the global workforce.
Job Title/Job Description: Academic Internship Council (AIC), an agency we partner with to provide co-op placements for our students, offers year-round co-ops in Toronto.The specific position will be identified after an interview with AIC (via Skype or Phone) whereby students will discuss their interests and skills and the types of positions they would like to consider. If, after the interview screening, the International Team extends an acceptance, job placement is guaranteed. However, students will not know the name of the company, the job title or exact responsibilities until just prior to starting work. The agency will arrange interviews once a student is committed to the program, and it takes three to four months for them to secure the student's position.
