Graduate Trainee Program



About

The Kinectrics Graduate Trainee Development Program provides graduates with the knowledge, tools and experience necessary for success. Working alongside experts in the field, you will acquire technical experience in a professional atmosphere that will ensure you develop the skills essential for your career growth. The program provides a means of developing and assessing the capabilities of new graduates through:


  • A planned and structured program
  • On-the-job training through project work assignments
  • Periodic assessment and review of progress
  • Exposure to a wide range of the work undertaken by Kinectrics
  • Appropriate placement within Kinectrics upon completion of the program


Program Outline

The Graduate Trainee Program consists of an initial orientation session, and rotations through different work groups within Kinectrics.


Program Duration

The program is designed to normally run for 24 months with four rotations, approx. six months in length, but is flexible based on your needs and the departments ongoing projects. Upon successful completion of the program, trainees will be placed in a position at Kinectrics. Initial placement will be made based on consideration of recommendations by the trainee’s supervisors and the Program Coordinator, the trainee’s strengths and preferences, and Kinectrics business needs.


Rotations

The intent of the rotations is to ensure the trainee receives a broad base of skills and knowledge across Kinectrics. It also ensures that there is more flexibility in the work the trainee can perform in the future, as the trainee will have been exposed to several facets of the Kinectrics business.


Rotations may be shortened if the trainee is able to complete the rotation requirements earlier than planned. Conversely, rotations can be extended by mutual agreement to facilitate business needs (e.g. completion of a project that extends beyond six months).


What We Are Looking For

The GT Program recruits motivated, soon to graduate, or recently (within 1 year) graduates into the program. Undergraduate, Masters and PhD students from Engineering and Science disciplines are encouraged to apply. A strong application often includes relevant summer work or co-op experience in a related field, strong academic credentials and a well-balanced volunteering background.
