Being a Host Company

How does it work?

A talented class of students in the Corporate Readiness Training Program (CRTP) with several years of international experience is ready to work on one or more projects for you this summer. These internationally trained professionals are available for an unpaid internship for a term project to be completed between June 29 to August 21, 2020 (dates are flexible).

We are currently preparing our students for the Canadian workplace. They are getting ready for virtual or on-site internships depending on your needs. Help support newcomers integrate into their profession in Canada.

Our role is to make the process easy for you. Contact our team to learn more about the our students, their skills and how they can support your business. We will support your team in screening the students and both the students and their supervisors over the duration of the work experience. Call Gaurav at 403-410-3198 or Grisel at 403-770-5158 or email us at crtp@bowvalleycollege.ca

The CRTP students have skills you are looking for that include developing strategies, thinking creatively, problem solving and making recommendations to support your company’s growth.

What will the CRTP team do to make this work for your organization?

We will:

  • work with you upfront to determine the most suitable participant for your company
  • provide you with candidates’ resumes and a qualifications summary that highlights their past experiences
  • arrange interviews with the candidates of your choice
  • provide you with a standard host company agreement

The whole process is quick, efficient, and cost-effective.

If you choose to offer a work experience placement to one of our CRTP participants, we stay in the picture to:

  • Provide support to both participants and host company supervisors
  • Arrange meetings to provide feedback via a participant evaluation form
