SUMMER INTERNSHIP: TEAMWORK 2023
The University of Toronto has engaged with top universities around the globe, to offer a unique opportunity to deliver a 4-week unpaid internship that will help you boost your employability on the global work market. This program will provide you with the opportunity to also develop your international experience, intercultural & communication skills and improve your project management techniques.
You will be working with students from around the world on an international project proposed by a company or NGO for 4 weeks starting at the end of June 2023 into July 2023. Your participation will require a few hours of your time per week, including both synchronous online international activities, and personal activities.
You will learn to:

Find out more about yourself and explore career options
Gain a global network of friends and meet potential employers
The universities involved are the University of Warwick (England), the University of Toronto (Canada), Cornell University (USA), Hong Kong University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China). At the end of the internship, you will receive a certificate from the University of Warwick for your participation in the program.
Timeline (may be subject to adjustments):
Last week of April - May: intercultural workshops, webinars, and icebreaking activities with your fellow teammates across the globe.
