i-onCONNECT Student Internships
i-onCONNECT is proud to establish a partnership with students by providing internships that offer hands-on experience to empower the success of their education and future. Students work closely with our i-on team to gain invaluable knowledge and provide our team with fresh ideas and support. At i-onCONNECT, we are committed to creating world-class platforms to accelerate student’s careers, and we look forward to continuing this partnership with academia.
These internship opportunities benefit the students in several ways. Firstly, this is a practical experience that will directly apply to their field of study and prospective work. They will learn how to utilize their knowledge and skills in a work setting, how to manage their time effectively, and how to collaborate with other team members. Here at i-onCONNECT, our interns are a significant part of the i-on community, as we find it crucial to include them in all projects and business developments.
One of our interns, Alexandra Walker, speaks to her experience at i-onCONNECT: “I am a BCIT Marketing and Communications student working over the summer for i-onCONNECT. The entire team has been extremely welcoming, helpful, and inclusive. It’s been great to work in an environment where my ideas have been heard and my contributions have been appreciated. I have had the chance to attend and work events where I have made connections with other industry professionals that will benefit me in my future career. i-onCONNECT has given me great responsibility and lead on certain projects, and their trust in me has motivated me to work to the best of my ability. This experience has taught me so much in such a short time and will considerably set me apart from my peers at BCIT.”
We are happy to help add to students’ resume, strengthening their personal advancement and promotion. As well, we ensure that students not only have the opportunity to learn something new, but we also provide mentoring to them throughout the process. However, most importantly, we want the interns’ time with us to be enjoyable and inspire passion in their work and career. Our experience hiring interns has been very positive and beneficial, and we are excited to expand our internship program, developing the skills, expertise, and qualifications of these hard-working individuals.
