BCIT Graphic Communications students in their final term of study in their first and second years are available to work five days a week in your organization for a two or six week period. The students have completed the majority of their classroom requirements and have job ready skills to make an impact within your organization and are eager to sink their teeth into real work.
The job placement program provides students with exposure to the industry and gives them some work experience in the field of their study. At the same time, you receive a recently trained student to work on projects and complete various tasks within your organization. It is a perfect way to try out a potential new entry-level employee with no risk. A win/win for both parties.

How does the job placement process work?
Create and submit a one or two page Word document containing the following:
- Brief description of your organization
- Job description outlining the student’s responsibilities
- The organization’s name, address, and website
- Contact name, phone number, and email address
Remember, students will be applying based on the information that you provide. Companies that provide a detailed and interesting description of the position, the company, and the industry tend to attract more applicants and have a higher chance of landing a student. Securing a student is not guaranteed.
