Find a Creative Industries Intern

I'm a prospective student, how will my internship work?

In the summer after third year or during the fall semester of fourth year, students begin their work placement within a creative enterprise. This placement is for a minimum of 240 hours of work and must be within a creative sector company. Placements may be paid, unpaid, or offer an honorarium. Our work placement office helps students find placements through a series of professional development workshops and a robust Creative Industries job board. While we work hard to help, it is ultimately the students’ responsibility to apply, attend interviews and land a role.

The work placement is closely integrated with the final year of study of the Creative Industries program. During the internship, students are required to collect a broad range of information that will be used later for reflection and analysis during their capstone 4th year seminar course, CRI 800Managing Creative Enterprises. Students are also monitored by the program’s industry liaison co-ordinator during the placement.

The requirement is designed to provide a first-hand, practical experience of an environment in which creative enterprises operate and of the management practices employed to support and expedite creative work. To date, our students have worked in small, medium and large-scale companies in a broad range of sectors, including fashion, advertising, television, gaming, museums, film, and music – to name a few.

Toronto is a hotbed of arts and culture. Close to 23,700 artists live here and since 2001, the creative workforce here has grown by 34 per cent, faster than the rest of the labour force. It’s also home to the biggest names in media, fashion, film, music, and television; think CBC, the Globe and Mail, TSN, ELLE Canada, Canada Goose, Joe Fresh, Arts & Crafts, and VICE. Embedded in the vibrant downtown core, at Ryerson University, the city is your classroom.
