Host an intern from Québec in your organization
When an organization* hosts young professionals as interns, it is a rewarding experience for both the intern and the organization. Given our globalizing world, LOJIQ strives to encourage young Québec graduates to acquire international experience by helping them secure internships with organizations overseas.
* French organizations wishing to hire Québec interns are asked to contact OFQJ France.
How to proceed
1. The host organization must complete the internship form.
2. The person at LOJIQ in charge of internships will contact the organization by email as quickly as possible to discuss the feasibility of the request and how best to follow through with it.
3. Once the request has been validated, LOJIQ posts the offer on its website and distributes it throughout its network.
4. LOJIQ conducts meetings to assess applicant motivation, preselect candidates, and submit applications to the organisation.
5. To help the host organization make a final decision, LOJIQ plan telephone interviews between selected candidates and the employer.
6. The organization confirms the decision in writing to LOJIQ, which provides the intern with administrative and logistical assistance.
