Graphic Communications Management (GCM) Ryerson University

Job Fair

ABOUT

The GCM Job Fair event is an opportunity for employers to network and interview determined students seeking summer internships or full-time career positions. Each company can expect to interview approximately 24 students—12 interns and 12 graduates. Since companies will not be able to interview all students, they are invited to collect as many résumés as they please in order to seek out additional talent.

Interns are normally looking for full-time work (40 hours per week) from May to August. The graduation requirement is 420 hours of work; however, most students are interested in working for the duration of the summer to maximize their experiences. The average pay in previous years has been $14-$18 per hour.
