Looking for summer employment that relates to your degree program? Then the Summer Work-Integrated Learning Program (SWILP) may be for you!
UNB’s Office of Experiential Education, UNB Financial Aid, and UNB Career Development & Employment Centre partnered together to provide internships and programs available to students in several different degree programs. These currently include Arts internships, Renaissance College internships, kinesiology internships, and co-op programs for engineering and science students.
Per the director of the program, Sarah King, “SWILP helps you set and reach personal and professional goals and provides training, support, and opportunities to reflect on what you’ve learned through your summer job”.
All SWILP positions pay $14 an hour, and are between 12-16 weeks from May to August.
