Speak to a professional in your sector of activity about your career path, your accomplishments, and your skills, with a view to obtaining an internship in the company.

Whatever the results of the meeting may be, you will benefit from constructive feedback on your performance.

Non-Remunerated Internship

Get your initial Quebec work experience in your area of expertise, and familiarize yourself with local business practices!

Complete a non-remunerated internship lasting a maximum of four weeks in an organization in the Montréal region. This is a remarkable opportunity to demonstrate your skills while broadening your network of professional contacts.

2. Professional Contact

Career Discovery Day

Get an inside look at a Quebec company operating in your sector.

As Career Discovery Days are adapted to meet the needs of the host company, the activities in which you may be involved will vary: an introduction to the organization and its services, pairings with employees, or speed-jobbing sessions.
