Do you post jobs on campus?
All of our job opportunities are posted online (view career opportunities for students). Some schools may require you to apply through your co-op/internship office in addition to the BlackBerry website. Please check to ensure you're following your school’s process.
When do you recruit for student positions?
Co-op/internship opportunities are posted during September, January and May. Check back often to view new opportunities or to set up your profile to receive notifications when a job matching your skills and interests becomes available.
At what locations are the student jobs located?
BlackBerry offers student positions in all of our Canadian locations, including Waterloo, Mississauga, Halifax and Ottawa. Student positions are also available in the United States in Redwood City, CA, Issaquah (Seattle), WA, and Irving (Dallas), TX.
Are you participating at on-campus events?
Please visit our campus career events page to see when we're coming to your campus.
Do you have to be in a registered co-op/internship program to be hired for a student position?
Though we prefer to hire candidates through a registered co-op/internship program, we’ll consider students not registered in formal programs. However, you must be returning to full-time studies upon completion of your term with BlackBerry.
How many students does BlackBerry hire each semester?
BlackBerry hires approximately 300-400 students each term.
Should I mail my hard copy resume or email my soft copy resume to you?
We’ve developed an online application system to upload your profile and Word-based resume. Our system will allow you to update your profile and resume as your skills and qualifications change, as well as notify you of positions that become available and match your interests.
Does BlackBerry help students relocate if they’re hired, or must students take care of this themselves?
BlackBerry will provide relocation assistance to those students who are required to relocate outside of the state/province of their school for a work term with BlackBerry.
Are there any student programs that BlackBerry offers to co-ops/interns?
The BCSC (BlackBerry Co-op Social Committee) seeks to promote social balance and interaction among the large number of students employed at BlackBerry every work term. This initiative creates a fun and exciting atmosphere, both inside and outside of work. All students working at BlackBerry are encouraged to take part. Additionally, BlackBerry offers multiple events/sports teams for employees to join and the opportunity to take part in community events such as Dragon Boat Races.
