Summer Intern Recruiting

At Smith, over 80% of our 3rd year Commerce students complete an academic exchange in either the fall or winter term. Therefore, we host two recruiting periods for summer interns:

  1. October 2–November 20, 2017: primarily Financial Services
  2. January 8–25, 2018: All Industries

Please note: some firms will recruit for summer positions in September as a part of their full-time recruiting efforts.

Registration for Info Sessions and Interview dates will open online on July 25 at 9am. Reservations will be taken on a first-come basis. Please see our booking form for details needed at the time of booking. All firms recruiting with us must sign our Recruitment Policy prior to recruiting. If you have already submitted this form for the September recruitment period, there is no need to submit it again.

On Campus Interview Dates

The following dates are reserved as protected, designated on-campus interview dates. Students in Kingston are not permitted to leave campus on these dates for off-campus interviews in their respective industries. This will ensure students are available for firms that wish to conduct interviews on-campus in Kingston. Outside of these dates, firms are permitted to interview on or off campus. It is recommended that firms consult with their Relationship Manager to identify the ideal time to recruit as it varies by industry.
