About our GCM Students 

GCM students possess a diverse range of skills that provide value to employers in areas such as (but not limited to): marketing, graphic design, document design, eBook/ePub development, image retouching, digital image capture, print production, packaging design, project management, digital asset management, estimating and sales.

Graduating students are looking for full-time, career focused employment.

Internships are a mentoring relationship between the employer and a third year student. These paid positions begin at the end of April and continue until the end of August. Students typically seek full-time positions however, a minimum of 200 hours of work is allowed. Many students continue their internships on a part-time basis during the fall when school recommences, if the employer wishes.

FAQ

Unfortunately, we are not able to send you the list due to last minute changes being made to interview schedules.

We leave the next step of the recruitment process to you. Some students are hired on the spot and while others are invited to attend a second round of interviews. If you have filled a position, we ask that you send a courtesy email to students who showed interest in the position but were not selected for the role.

 

Congratulations! Once an intern has accepted the offer, the onus is on the student to contact the school about their employment so that we can update their status and make arrangements for a site visit.
