Student Opportunities

We make big things here at TransCanada, including opportunity. We’re looking for people who are ready to take on the most significant challenges of their careers and define energy infrastructure in North America.

To attract that kind of big talent, we recognize the importance of recruiting from all career stages. We feel tapping into the energy and skills of talented students to work in all aspects of our business will help us meet our business goals. We do this through our summer student, co-op and new graduate programs.

Summer Student Program

Opportunity knocks for students looking for a summer job. TransCanada's Summer Student Program employs students throughout Canada and the U.S. with positions in a variety of departments at our office and field locations from early May to late August. To participate, you must be 18 years of age or over, enrolled in a post-secondary institution and returning to school in September, at the end of the work term.

TransCanada is the kind of company that offers challenging work and diverse opportunities. As part of our Summer Student Program, you will gain valuable work experience with fair pay at one of North America's leading energy infrastructure companies. If you're ready to have an interesting summer experience, we're ready for you.

Co-op/Internship Students

In addition to full-time opportunities, we offer opportunities to acquire valuable applied work experience through co-op internships.

TransCanada's co-op education and internship programs are available to post-secondary students registered as full-time students with an academic institution's co-op or internship program. Our program operates year-round with fall, winter and summer work terms that range from four to 16 months. We offer flexible work hours so you can choose a schedule that fits your life along with a competitive salary benchmarked against the industry.

You'll find our co-op and internship opportunities advertised at post-secondary institutions. If you're interested in seeking a term with TransCanada, check with your co-op or internship office to review available opportunities and get application information.

Interviews at TransCanada

TransCanada uses the behavioural descriptive approach to interviewing. This means questions are centred on descriptions of your recent experiences that demonstrate particular behavioural reactions. The intention is to uncover prior behaviours that are reasonable predictors of future action, and that match required skills for the available position.

For more information on best practices in resume writing and interviews, you can contact your campus employment centre or search the Internet for sites specializing in this information.
