Internship in a construction company in Montreal and the Quebec province

internship in a construction company in montreal quebec canada allows to get an invaluable hands-on experience in a company in Canada. Yet it is not always easy to find a business that opens its doors to welcome, train and coach. This is why a new company internship formula was established by the owner of a construction company, Construction Daniel Dargis Inc. in Montreal. These training internships are aimed at a large customer base and affect many areas. They aim less at having applicants to work as to training them in business through various stages so that they become then autonomous and able to work in a company. These internships, which vary in duration, are addressed to future engineers, architects, designers, marketing experts, accountants and project administrators as well as to business people and immigrant investors who want to start a business and set up real-estate projects in Quebec. Interns rotate through a series of steps and journey towards greater autonomy. First as observers watching others complete projects, consulting projects, reports, plans already made, and works realized, receiving software training or attending seminars and then participating in real projects as self-employed assistants. Once the trainee has acquired a certain degree of autonomy, he can then be hired as a self-employed freelancer on some projects and get a flat fee per project or an investor and entrepreneur can then begin to acquire land and buildings and construct his own projects. To participate in these company internships in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, certain conditions apply.

This innovative internship program is designed to train students in a company and professionals graduated as engineers, architects, building designers, to better find employment thereafter as well as for business people in construction to develop a business and start real-estate projects. For the first time a construction company in Quebec and Canada created a training department and becomes a practical school for people from the outside.

This program has nothing to do with traditional courses in a class offered by schools, colleges or universities with the same program for all students who need to learn a lot of information that will never be used, do work and with graduation at the end. It is more concerned with real construction projects, past, present and future, through which professional trainees, entrepreneurs, business people or immigrant investors learn and participate at different levels, together as a team or independently, under the direction of Mr. Daniel Dargis, engineer and general contractor since 1989 in Quebec, Canada.
