If you’re a Mississauga student looking for a paid opportunity this summer, you might be excited to hear that Sheridan College is looking to fill 75 positions.
Recently, Transport Minister and Mississauga Centre MP, Omar Alghabra, announced significant funding for Sheridan through the Canada Summer Jobs program.
In a news release, Sheridan said that 75 funded co-op positions for students from Mississauga will be made available through Sheridan’s Virtual Internship Program (VIP) – Innovation Accelerator.
The college said the VIP was launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and barriers faced by students looking to access work-integrated learning opportunities to complete their programs.
According to Sheridan, the Innovation Accelerator pairs degree students with community collaborators to address pandemic-related challenges using “human-centred design.”
This summer, students will be working with eight collaborators.
“Programs like Canada Summer Jobs give youth in Mississauga and across Canada a unique chance to develop their skills and gain valuable work experience through quality job opportunities,” Alghabra said in a statement.
“I welcome the news that Sheridan College will be hiring 75 students, helping equip our young leaders to participate in our thriving economy, both today and tomorrow.”
