Indigenous students invited to apply for summer internships
Eight opportunities across UM; apply by March 18
Indigenous UM students are invited to apply for the Indigenous Summer Student Internship Program (ISSIP). Students must be full-time Indigenous UM students, who are either graduating this spring or returning to full-time studies in the fall.
To apply by March 18, visit UM Careers and search “Indigenous Intern.” Each position will include the host department and job details.
This is the fifth year that the program is available to the university’s Indigenous students.
The internship program is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous students to access unique career-related experiences in their field of study.
“The university has a wide range of meaningful work opportunities that we want students to know about, so they consider building a career at the U of M after graduation,” says Carrie Homeniuk, Director, HR Services.
Placements will include the Centre for Human Rights Research, Student Engagement and Success, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Microbiology, to name a few areas.
There will be eight summer placements. The students will be hired to work 35 hours per week from May 9 to August 26.
Anjelica Bodnaryk, 2019 ISSIP participant, notes the program has opened up new opportunities in her career and encourages all qualifying students to apply for the internship.
“One-hundred percent do it! Don’t hesitate. It’s a great experience and it offers you a chance to work in fields that interest you.”
