Student Summer Employment Registration Service

Available from January 1 to June 30.

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 2 to 4 months and provide assistance or support to various types of work 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.

To be eligible to register, you must:

  • Have student status (i.e. be enrolled in a secondary or post-secondary institution).
  • Be returning to academic studies in September.
  • If you are not a student, please visit for a listing of our current employment opportunities.

The registration process is easy:

  • Answer a few questions.
  • Attach your resume and cover letter. The cover letter may be addressed “Attention: Human Resources.”
  • Submit your registration!

After you register:

  • You will receive an email confirming your registration and the receipt of your resume.
  • Government of Alberta ministries that have summer employment opportunities available will contact students that have been selected for interviews.
  • Interviews are usually held during March and April. Some interviews may be held during January/February.
  • Student summer employment opportunities typically begin in May.
  • Your resume will be kept on file until September 1.

Please note:

  • Some ministries may advertise specialized summer employment opportunities on our Government of Alberta Jobs website under the Seasonal category.
