In this two-part, back-to-school series, learn about the opportunities available at TELUS for current engineering students and recent graduates. In this first installment, OSPE shares TELUS’ co-op and internship opportunities. Stay tuned for an upcoming post on TELUS’ impressive Graduate Engineering Leadership Program (GELP).
But there’s much more you should know about TELUS. The country’s most admired telecommunications company has been using technology to improve healthcare, the environment, our communities and so much more for over a century.
For engineering students who’ve just returned to campus and are thinking about how they will acquire practical work experience, it might be helpful to know how TELUS actively invests in the next generation of Canadian engineers.
The organization offers four, eight, twelve and sixteen-month technical and engineering co-op and internship opportunities, three times a year. It’s not surprising, then, that TELUS has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for five consecutive years, among many other awards and titles such as, Canada’s Greenest Employers for the past six years.
Positions are posted here for the upcoming placements beginning in January 2018.
To help co-op students get the most out of their work term, TELUS provides real-world challenges that enable young professionals to build their skills and better assess their career plans after graduation.
As the voice of Ontario’s engineers, interns, students, and graduates, OSPE has consistently communicated how practical experience coupled with technical knowledge can position young professionals for success in the engineering labour market.
To this end, students have access to the latest iOS and Android information, and gain knowledge of emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, and Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR / VR), through TELUS’ Incubation Program.
