What is the ideal duration of an internship in Canada?
Our internships last between 4 and 24 weeks or longer if your University requires it.
An internship of 4-10 weeks is usually long enough to observe and participate in an organisation’s basic processes, learn about its business philosophy, and begin helping out on various projects.
An internship of 11-20 weeks is usually enough time to participate in and start to master basic business processes, to become an integral part of the team, and to start managing your own projects and becoming involved with larger team projects.
An internship of 21+ weeks allows you to master business processes and even start improving those processes, to become a fundamental part of the team, and to take on more complex projects both independently and as part of a team.
We can discuss the internship length and what is best for your outcomes in your one on one interview with your placement supervisor.
