Internships and Careers

Internship Resources @ McGill

Internships are a great way to put academic knowledge into practice while exploring career possibilities. An intern expects to acquire practical skills in the day-to-day operation of an environmental organization. Often an intern will develop a relationship with a mentor within the organization, establishing valuable contacts in his or her field of interest.


Interactive Guide to Finding an Internship The Internship Offices Network's guided video tour highlights the merits of the Internship program and provides students with downloadable worksheets to facilitate the process.
