The iPRAKTIKUM team is pleased to announce an internship opportunity at a software start-up in downtown Toronto to begin immediately.
Meisterplan Inc. is a software vendor whose parent company is located in Tübingen, Germany. Interns will gain practical experience in software support and sales and project management and will also have opportunities to practice their German language skills in a work-related context. Students should have an interest in software and technology; experience in project and human resource management is an asset. Preference will be given to candidates who have completed or are currently completing at least GER 200Y or have achieved an equivalent level of proficiency (CERF ‘B1’ or ACTFL ‘IM’).
This opportunity is available to undergraduate students as a Co-Curricular Record (CCR) option (minimum of 20 hours in consultation with the employer). The internship will appear on your transcript, certifying a work-integrated learning experience.
