BCIT New Media Design and Web Development students in their final term of study are available to work five days a week in your organization for a nine-week period. The students have completed most 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 New Media diploma program offers three internship opportunities starting in January, May, and September.

The internship provides students with exposure to the new media industry and gives them valuable work experience. 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.
