Internship Program

The Internship Program offers Grade 11 students the opportunity to experience the world of work for two to six weeks during the summer vacation. Are you interested in hosting a ZIS student at your company for two to six weeks next summer?

 

The Internship Program offers Grade 11 students the opportunity to experience the world of work for two to six weeks during the summer vacation.

A wide range of large and small companies, hospitals and other organizations offer our students these experiences through the program, which also includes workshops where students learn how to write a resume/CV, create a meaningful ‘letter of motivation’ and prepare for interviews with organizations.

These opportunities provide real-life experiences which help students understand the world of work and what life post-ZIS might look like. In addition, these unpaid 'real life' opportunities support students when applying to university. And, as reported on page 3 of the winter 2017/18 edition of Voices magazine, having a ZIS student intern is also a great benefit to companies and organizations.

If you are interested in hosting a ZIS student at your company for two to six weeks next summer, please contact the Internship Coordinator Dale Braunschweig at dbraunschweig@zis.ch for more information.
