Looking to Hire a Student?

AIESEC is looking for employers interested in hiring a student in IT, Marketing, Teaching Science or Engineering

AIESEC is currently the largest youth leadership network in the world operating in 128 countries, regions, and territories, including Canada, the UK, France, Africa, and the Middle East. In Canada, AIESEC extends across 29 universities including the University of Alberta, University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. We provide students studying Marketing, IT, Business, Sciences and Engineering international jobs in their fields.

We believe that through these internships, we offer students a chance to experience another part of the world so that they can understand other cultures and their fields; so, when they go back home, they are confident in their skill and can make a difference.

AIESEC International was founded in 1928, and AIESEC MRU was founded in 2012. AIESEC has always been composed of and run by students. We are a group dedicated to developing this business for the students of Calgary. Our aim is to provide professional development for the students of Calgary through international experience and practical work. By providing jobs, we allow students to jump start their careers.

AIESEC MRU is a not-for-profit business that is operated by Calgarian students, for Calgarian students. We break the work-experience cycle by creating international internships that provide students the ability to gain needed experience for their future professional occupations.

We seek to develop skills that students in Calgary and around the world need to be successful, to do this, we need companies. If you are looking to hire talent in IT, Marketing, Teaching Sciences or Engineering and are willing to hire a student please contact us at
