Detailed job descriptions for the positions are below.


Ron Joyce Centre Internships (Business and Public Sector Organizations)


 A Ron Joyce Centre Internship is a unique, “Made-for-Mount A” employment opportunity. We partner with selected employers to develop intern roles that include four key elements:

  • meaningful work
  • meetings
  • feedback
  • a project

  What makes an internship such a rewarding work experience?

Daniel ComfortDan Comfort, a Commerce student, describes his experience working as an intern in a professional services firm:

“An internship offers more than a typical summer job because you’re able to work in your field of study. And the people you work with try to develop you. They’re not just focused on output.

“Meetings are good to see the workflow of different positions. Through meaningful work, you get to apply all the theories you learned in class. And the side project allows you to tackle a problem you might not have learned about in school. You have to dig into your entire bank of knowledge to apply what you’ve learned.”


What kinds of organizations hire Mount A interns?
Mount A interns have been hired by a wide variety of organizations, from Big Four professional services firms to small entrepreneurial companies. Some Ron Joyce Centre interns have also worked in campus departments.

Our roster of employer-partners changes from year to year, depending on employer need. Here are some of our recent employers:

Where are Ron Joyce Centre Internships located?

Most of our interns work in New Brunswick or Nova Scotia, and a few have been hired in Toronto. We are currently exploring internship possibilities in other locations as well.

What if I want to work for an employer who’s not offering a Mount A internship?

Many organizations offer their own internship programs, which may or may not include the four elements of a Mount A internship. If you land one of these positions, you are welcome to participate in Mount A’s pre-placement training, Organizations 101, and in the guided reflection process.

If you have a dream organization in mind, you are also welcome to approach that organization and arrange your own self-generated internship.

Does the Ron Joyce Centre offer entrepreneurial internships?

We have indeed placed students in entrepreneurial organizations.
