Hire a MAccFin Student

MAccFin students are required to complete a full-time work term with a minimum duration of 12 weeks. This is an excellent opportunity for organizations to conduct an initial candidate assessment by hiring students for a small amount of time to determine if they are the right candidates for a full-time permanent role. With both Accounting and Finance academic training, our students are ready to fill important roles in your organizations, such as:

  • Taxation
  • Audit
  • Transaction advisory services
  • Corporate finance
  • Investment banking
  • Equity research
  • Sales and trading
  • Corporate and commercial banking
  • And more... 

Four month co-op internships begin every January.

As a MAccFin employer, you may be eligible to receive the Co-operative Education Tax Credit of up to $3,000 per student.

There are also wage subsidy grants available. Please inquire for more information.

With attentive professional service from the MAccFin team, we will support all your hiring needs and ensure your co-op intern experience is efficient and invaluable.

  • Positions are paid at a rate reflective of industry standards.
