Bombardier to provide 1,000+ paid internships in 2019-2020
Approximately 60 percent of positions will be in engineering roles including mechanical and aeronautical.
Bombardier announced it will invest approximately CAD$17 million to fund more than 1,000 paid internship positions in Canada (up from 550 positions in 2016) for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition, the company says it will focus on hiring interns who reflect the diversity that the company aspires to. For example, Bombardier says the percentage of female students recruited from science and engineering programs has increased from 16% in 2016 to an expected 40% by the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
The company expects to provide approximately 600 intern positions in the coming academic year for students pursuing engineering or science degrees, including mechanical, electrical, aeronautical, chemical and industrial engineering, as well as computer science and artificial intelligence. Another 400 intern positions will be focused on other management functions, including finance, accounting, IT, human resources, public affairs and law.
