09 Mar Tech Companies: Apply for the BCIC ISI – Innovator Skills Initiative Before April 1st!
The BCIC ISI program is an initiative to help companies hire students and create jobs in entrepreneurial environments. To enable companies to hire more students, 50% of the students’ salary up to a maximum of $7,500 will be paid for through a BCIC Innovator Skills Initiative Voucher, with the remainder being matched by the company.
The program gives students an opportunity to gain valuable and practical skills through employment with a BC-based technology company, while providing these companies with a chance to hire young talent at an affordable price.
To qualify for the program, students being hired must be in post-secondary or a co-op program. Eligible companies will receive a maximum of two BCIC Innovator Skills Initiative Vouchers per year, with each voucher being used for a 4-month term of student employment.
The BCIC ISI program is open to all BCTIA Member product-based technology companies. Please note that priority will be given to companies with less than 100 employees.
Deadline to apply: April 1st, 2016
Eligible companies will be notified by April 15th, 2016
