BCIT Tourism Management Practicum Program

BCIT Tourism Management 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 practicum 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 Management 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.

Securing an intern is not guaranteed.
