Employ the next generation of Tech Professionals

Be part of the solution and narrow Manitoba’s tech talent gap by taking on paid summer interns.  Tech Manitoba is collaborating with Pembina Trails Early College (PTEC) and Manitoba Trades and Technology (MITT) to turn out some of our province’s most talented tech-orientated students.  Show them what our industry’s about by providing real-world experience and a launch point for their career.

Internship Placements

Tech Manitoba is looking for industry to onboard graduating PTEC/MITT students for summer internship purposes, in one or both streams.  Seeking 10 placements for Software Development and up to 8 placements for Network+ Systems Administration.

These students are highly skilled and study in a unique tech focused model.  PTEC/MITT is a fusion of high-school, post-secondary and industry.  It is an academically rigorous and relevant school for youth with an aptitude and passion for careers in the technology sector and beyond.

What mentoring an
intern means for you

Hosting a student intern will give you the opportunity to shape Manitoba’s talent pool and invest in our sector.  You will also get to showcase the best of your organization to future tech professionals.

Gain new perspectives, exciting ideas, and a fresh outlook.  These students are submersed in new technologies and have a passion for the industry.

Providing an impressive internship is also a great way to spread the word about your organization. Receive community recognition while giving graduating students a unique opportunity to develop and learn new skills.

Paying interns matters

Paid interns are more invested in their placement, have ownership over their work and are motivated to take risks. Manitoba’s tech sector is full of well-paid opportunities so let’s show them off to our future talent pool. 

Tech Manitoba is asking employers to offer fair and reasonable salaries, based on industry standards. If you require financial support to facilitate the internship, ICTC’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) may be able to help. Learn more about WIL and how they help employers grow their businesses by providing financial assistance for hiring post-secondary students.
