Steps to Hiring an Intern

Create an opportunity or need within your organization that you think a student would be a great fit for.

Create an employer account on the CareerVIU portal or the VIWIL portal.

Receive your account approval email, login to the portal of your choice and post your MBA internship opportunity.

Detailed instructions on how to post and what information is required to post can be found here: https://services.viu.ca/centre-experiential-learning/post-mba-internship-opportunity

Review your applications, proceed with your organization hiring process and select your successful candidate.

The successful student starts with your organization by working through your onboarding and training process.

Work-integrated Learning (WIL) Connect

Some employers prefer to select a candidate rather than post an opportunity.  We got you covered.  The VIU MBA Internship Program has implemented a new module in our online work-integrated learning portal called WIL Connect.  WIL Connect houses MBA student created profiles that will aid selected employers in pre-screening for a suitable candidate without posting an opportunity.

For more information on the WIL connect module and how to access it follow the link provide below.
