Gain work experience

Nearly every program at Western includes the opportunity to pursue an optional work experience or a mandatory work term (i.e., internships, co-op and practicums). There are many reasons to consider making work integrated learning part of your student experience. Here are a few examples:

  • 4,700+ students participate in work experiences each year
  • 8,000+ employers recruit at Western
  • $33,150 - $49,134 is the average annual salary range for paid internships

Explore your career options

95% of our students find employment two years after graduation.

Not sure what you want to do after graduation? That's OK. Focus on the kinds of problems you want to solve or challenges you want to tackle. We'll help with the rest. Here's how:

  • Individual career appointments and assessments
  • Presentations and workshops
  • Networking evens and fairs
  • Drop-in options
  • Western Connect - an online portal for job postings and experiential learning opportunities
