Students

Get real work experience in your chosen field by applying to one of our student opportunities. You must be legally entitled to work in Canada by Canadian Citizenship, landed immigrant or permanent residency status, and be currently enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

We hire students for four-month work terms beginning in May, but we can accommodate scheduling based on individual need.

Check out the details on student positions we hire for:

Engineers

Engineering students join us after their second year of university for a work term in the field. Top performers may receive returning offers for an engineering office position for their next work term, typically beginning in May at our Calgary office. Eight- and 12-month terms have been approved on an exception basis.

Job postings and recruitment for field positions begin in September. We typically don't post engineering office positions as students are chosen from our pool of previous field students.
