  • Share best practices about internship programs within your organization

  • Receive guidance and information about how to post jobs and engage with Queen’s students through the QUIP, SWEP, Work Study and other EL programs

The Queen’s Student Advantage

Queen’s interns offer community and employer partners a number of key benefits:

  • Employers who hire interns are able to pre-screen and develop connections with potential future hires

  • Interns are trained in the newest techniques and offer an innovative, fresh perspective

  • By participating in an internship program the organization is contributing to the industry’s workforce talent and shaping what future graduates bring to the labour market

  • Through internships, joint university-organization projects, or other EL activities Queen’s students provide organizations the opportunity to take on new projects that may not otherwise take place

  • By participating in an internship program the organization is giving back to the community

  • Partner organizations may qualify for the Ontario Education Tax Credit

EL @ Queen's

I was lucky enough to work with Queen's University Internship Students during 2014.  The quality of their work is top tier and they are clearly passionate about Engineering and their future careers.  I find the Queen’s students have a natural ability to work in cross discipline teams and understand the theme of a common goal; this to me is a critical skillset required to succeed in today’s Engineering environment.“

We have had many QUIP students now at this point, and I can't stress enough that it has been such a wonderful experience for both the students and for PnuVax.
