BCIT Tourism Marketing and Sales students in their final term of study are available to work two days a week in your organization for a ten 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 internship program provides students with the opportunity to work for two days a week within an organization to gain work experience in the field of their choice. At the same time, you receive a recently trained Tourism Marketing and Sales student to work on projects within your organization. It is also a perfect way to try out a potential new entry-level employee with no risk. A win/win for both parties.

How does the internship process work?

Create and submit a one or two page Word document containing the following:

  • Brief description of your organization
  • Project 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 an intern. Securing an intern is not guaranteed.
