About the Job

Job Information

Through the Graduate Internship Program (GIP), departments recruit qualified, post-secondary Northern graduates into positions in a line of work related to their field of study. Interns receive valuable work experience and have the opportunity to apply their theoretical and academic knowledge in a practical, real world context and gain exposure to the GNWT as an employer.

How to Apply to the Program

Step 1

Submit your cover letter and a current copy of your resume through the Graduate Internship Program posting listed on our Current Openings page.

Step 2

For applicants who meet the eligibility criteria, an email will be sent indicating that you have been registered in the Graduate Internship Program. Registered applicants become candidates for Internships, and are retained on file for one year from the date of approval.

Step 3

If a potential internship match to your education and experience is found, you will be contacted for an interview by the hiring department. As with all staffing in the GNWT, the Affirmative Action Policy  is applied in staffing internship positions.

Diversity and Inclusion

The Government of the Northwest Territories is an inclusive workplace.  If you have a disability and you require support during the hiring process, you are encouraged to identify your needs if you are contacted for an assignment or interview so that you may be accommodated during the hiring process.
