Queen's Career Apprenticeship: Kingston
Queen's Career Apprenticeship: Kingston is an innovative program, which connects new graduates from the humanities and social science disciplines within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen's University with a Kingston employer. Employers who find the right fit through the program and commit to a 12-month contract, are reimbursed for 4 months of the gross salary to a maximum of $4,000 per month.
Receive up to $3000 as a wage subsidy when hiring a recent International post-secondary graduate. Through this initiative, local employers can access top talent in Kingston, a global perspective on their profession, and the opportunity to develop inclusive workplace competencies.
In partnership with Mitacs, Smith School of Business is participating in the Business Strategy Internship (BSI) program. This program supports graduate and undergraduate students in undertaking a strategy project with a business or not-for-profit to help restore or modify their business operations disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Students complete a supervised project as a 16-week paid internship during which they gain valuable experience while the organization benefits from the strategic work accomplished.
