You want an internship that’s more than a line on a resume. You want an experience, a challenge and a launch pad for lifelong relationships and career growth. EY is just the place to find it.

Over the course of the internship, you’ll work alongside our professionals throughout our global organization. And to help you hit the ground running, your first week is dedicated to on-the-job training, coaching and technology onboarding.

Then, as part of one of our high-performing teams, you'll gain exposure to our business and our world-class clients. Under the guidance and coaching of our professionals, you’ll experience working on real projects such as conducting internal control reviews on an audit, helping perform tax planning or even building a bot to help one of our teams work more efficiently.

You’ll also hone important skills, such as effective writing, presenting and networking. Throughout your journey, a counselor assigned to you will provide regular feedback and guidance and will be responsible, along with your peer advisor or mentor, for helping you develop the skills you need to succeed.

Your exceptional internship experience will culminate with Futures 2020, a global EY milestone event that celebrates the now, next and beyond in your career journey. It’s yours to build. It’s all of ours to celebrate.

To learn more, visit your school’s career services office and/or online careers portal to learn more about the opportunities available for students and to find out the next time we’ll be on your campus.

Co-op Placements

Looking for a co-op placement as part of your university program? We offer 4-8 month placements in all of our Canadian offices where you can experience what it is like to be a part of our exceptional client serving teams. You will have dynamic client experiences throughout the year and contribute to the services we provide worldwide as a global professional services firm.

During your co-op placement, you will receive hands-on training, coaching and development, and be able to put your university knowledge to use. These experiences will range in industries of your choice as the EY Experience is yours to build. It doesn’t end there either - when you are back at school in between co-op terms, you’ll act as a campus ambassador for EY and continue to receive our best-in-class employee benefits.

To recognize all the amazing work you do during your co-op terms, you could be eligible to accelerate your career with an early promotion when returning to EY full-time after graduation.

As part of the EY family, we want to ensure you have an exceptional experience with boundless opportunities to develop, both professionally and personally, with the best support and finest mentors along the way. Completing co-op terms with us will give you an inside look into a career at EY and how we can build a better working world together.

Global Student Experience

How can a four-week internship create a world of opportunities? With international assignments in major cities in the United States, the Global Student Experience (GSE) allows interns to collaborate and build relationships with people of diverse backgrounds – both professionally and culturally. It begins in June in the intern’s home office. The intern then works in an EY member firm in a different city for four weeks, and finally returns to the home office to complete the internship.

You will first be required to accept an internship offer from one of our Canadian offices. After you accept your offer, you'll be provided information about how to submit an application, which will include both a live and prerecorded video assessment. For more information, please reach out to your local EY campus recruiter.
