Types of placement

Hospitality and Tourism Internship

Interns will work for 6-12 month terms at a hotel, starting in a night-auditor role and circulate throughout the hotel to experience each of the different departments and roles.

Hospitality interns must have at least one year of experience at a hotel or resort or be recent graduates of a hotel management course. Interns are paid approximately $10 - $15 per hour and receive subsidised accommodation at the hotel or resort at $7 - $10 per day.

IT Internship

This internship may be paid or unpaid.

Internships are available in Vancouver for database administrators and for ASP.Net, Java, software, and web application developers. Interns may work at small, medium-sized or major IT firms (for example Electronic Arts), or within the IT departments of large hotels or manufacturers.

If paid, interns typically receive a stipend of $200 - $400 per week. To be paid, interns are required to have a minimum of 1 year’s related experience. If you do not have experience, or your skills are not applicable in Canada you may still be eligible to participate in an unpaid internship.

Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

Satoshi - Japan

"I'd say my contribution to the company is fairy high rate, because my boss told me to come back to them after the internship, when i get the working holiday visa. They give me a lot of acknowledgements which motivates me extraordinary. I really enjoy working with them. It seems workers are satisfied with what they're dealing with. For the rest of my internship, I'll learn new tasks as much as I can, keep up with the general speed of things, and concentrate on the tasks which I've known so that I won't make careless mistakes"

Natalie - United Kingdom

Thanks to Global choices, on behalf of my daughter Natalie. We appreciated the info kindly provided, together with the processing and research for the most suitable placement in Alberta. We had a two week holiday in Alberta and visited both establishments with our Canadian hosts. Needless to say both resorts mentioned are absolutely super! Thanks again for your effort. On behalf of Natalie. We look forward to further placement news. ~ Natalie’s father Andrew
