In this episode of 60 Seconds, Valerie Walker, Executive Director or the Business/Higher Education Roundtable congratulates Bombardier for its commitment to provide 1000 paid internship positions in Canada for 2019-2020.
Exciting news! I wanted to take a second to congratulate Bombardier, who announced this week a national internship program where they will be funding one thousand paid internships across the country. This means that students from diverse backgrounds and multidisciplinary programs will all have an opportunity to participate in these paid internships. It’s this kind of leadership from companies as well as sector-specific initiatives like this that are being run and set up across the country, allowing students to successfully transition from school to work, that is one of the primary goals right now at the Business Higher Education Roundtable and we’re so excited to congratulate Bombardier on this work and to support work like this across the country so that Canada is ready and preparing young people for whatever the future of work might hold.
