Benefits of Hiring an Intern

  • Flexible hiring: Students are available on a year-round basis for 4, 8, 12 or 16 months. York University follows a continuing recruitment cycle which allows you to post, interview and hire interns based on your organization’s needs.
  • Facilitated hiring process: Hiring an intern is easy and our team is available to assist you each step of the way. We’ll coordinate the hiring process for you with services that include: free online job postings and application collection to interview scheduling and job offers.
  • Financial Incentives: Your organization may be eligible for a refundable tax credit equal to 25-30% of eligible expenditures (i.e. up to $3000 for each qualifying work period), if a student has completed a minimum of 8 consecutive months in an internship placement. Your organization would not be eligible for the tax credit if the student completes only a 4 month internship.

What Employers Have to Say

“The York University Internship Program has been a tremendous benefit for the TD Technology team as it has given TD Bank the opportunity to work, mentor and train a number of the best students that will be graduating and entering the work force next year. Some of our students have decided they would like to start a full time career at TD upon graduation because of the positive experience they enjoyed through the program.” - Andrew Merritt, Senior IT Manager, TD Bank Financial Group

“I believe this internship program is of great value to both students and corporations – our intern’s support was paramount to our marketing department and I also believe she learned a lot in her time with us.” - Jo Figueiredo, Volkswagen Group Canada Inc.
