Bombardier to Hire Over 1,000 Paid Interns

Bombardier has confirmed that it will provide more than 1,000 paid internship positions in Canada for the 2019-2020 school year.

While the company has provided paid internship positions in Canada for more than two decades, this is the first time Bombardier has publicly committed to exceeding 1,000 internships in a single academic year.

Bombardier expects to invest approximately $17 million (CAD) to fund its internship program, with the vast majority of this amount going towards intern salaries.

“We are extremely proud to be able to commit to more than 1,000 intern positions for this school-year,” said Mike Nadolski, Vice President, Communications and Public Affairs, Bombardier Inc. “This announcement reflects Bombardier’s ongoing commitment to playing a leading role in the education and development of the next generation of innovators and business leaders.”

In addition to growing the program from approximately 550 positions in 2016 to more than 1,000 in the coming year, Bombardier has made it a priority to recruit and hire interns who reflect the diversity that the company aspires to attain in its workforce. One notable achievement has been an increase in the percentage of female students recruited from science and engineering programs from 16% in 2016 to more than 25% in this year. Female interns are expected to fill 40% of all intern positions by the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

For the upcoming year, Bombardier expects to recruit interns from 23 colleges and universities across Canada, up from eight in 2016.

The company expects to provide approximately 600 intern positions in the coming academic year for students pursuing engineering or science degrees, including opportunities in 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.

Bombardier also recently launched a new website to streamline the application process for interested students and its university partners.

“With hundreds of former interns accepting full-time positions at Bombardier over the past few years, our internship program serves as a valuable pipeline for talent to support our future growth,” Nadolski added. “The program helps us identify and hire the brightest minds from the next generation as we continue to drive innovation in the aviation and rail industries.”

Bombardier is currently working with the following universities to provide internship opportunities: Concordia University, École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Polytechnique Montréal, Desautels Faculty of Management, John Molson School of Business, HEC, Université de Sherbrooke, Université de Montréal, Université Laval, McGill University, UQAM, UQTR, ÉNA, Ryerson University, University of Toronto, McMaster University, Waterloo University, University of Ottawa, Centennial College, Carleton University, Queen’s University, York University and ESG.
