If you are seeking employment in spring 2013, and would like to experience IBM’s elite student program offered only in the summer, check out the above posting.  There are 18 openings offered to university students across Canada.   Please note the following comments from the employer:

Deadline for applications is January 27th.

Phone interviews are already taking place as resumes are accepted. The turn-around time from reviewing resumes to phone interviews is pretty fast (less than 1 week). After phone screening interviews, applicants are interviewed by project managers (less than 1 week). Verbal offers will be given between February 11 and 22. Students have 48 hours to decide. We hope to have all of our interns selected and assigned to projects by February 22nd.

The reason for such a speedy recruitment period is that this program is elite including features:

–        High profile projects that students work on

–        Access to top consultants for professional development

–        Trip to IBM HQ to present to the CEO and other executives

–        Top pay etc.

This is a very competitive program and we are interested in hiring students after their internship.
