***PLEASE NOTE: The Government of Alberta is currently in a hiring restraint.  As a result, summer employment opportunities for students may be limited in number in 2016.***

Thank you for your interest in student summer employment with the Government of Alberta.  Summer employment provides students with the opportunity to learn about our organization, develop workplace skills, and gain career related experience.

Summer students are typically hired for a period of two to four months and provide assistance or support to various types of work   in areas such as: administrative support, research, policy, finance, accounting, forestry, information technology, human services, human resources, communication, environmental science, conservation, tourism, grounds keeping, maintenance, etc.

Our Student Summer Employment Registration Service provides an easy and efficient way for students to register and submit their resumes to a centralized database in order to be considered for potential summer employment opportunities with us.

The Government of Alberta ministries that have determined their summer student recruitment needs will review the database, identify the students to be interviewed, and then contact them to schedule interviews.
