Enginehire is a data driven platform built to connect engineering students with internship and job opportunities.
We work with engineering companies that are looking for young engineering talent. The way it works is pretty simple, all you have to do is create an enginehire profile outlining who you are, what you are interested in and what you are good at. We use algorithms to search the database based on the employer's requirements, and if the position aligns with your skills and interests, we will connect you directly with the company.
Thanks to enginehire's data driven approach, once you create a profile you are automatically considered for every new opportunity we receive.
The key to enginehire is that there are thousands of engineering companies, in every industry, looking for young engineering talent. The problem is that only about 50 show up for career fairs, and most of them are recruiting for software positions. The opportunities are out there, companies just need a better way to find you.
It's fast, it's free, if you want to find out more and build your profile, visit enginehire.org.

If most or all of that sounds like you, we want you to come and join us at MakerKids – a fun and growing company where you can ignite children’s potential.
MakerKids, a certified B Corp, develops maker learning programs for kids and educators, and runs one of the only makerspaces for kids in the world.
We inspire kids to see their futures as inventors, entrepreneurs, and innovators.
We provide amazing interest-driven STEM programs to help kids move from being consumers to creators.
We've been featured in major media such as Wired, CTV and the Globe and Mail, and have spoken at SXSW, Maker Faire, MakerCon, and more.
Maker programs are gaining steam. Demand for our programs is growing fast and that means we need to find and train awesome instructors to serve an enthusiastic and growing fan base.
Your job will be to lead MakerKids programming - after school programs, camps, sampler sessions, and other workshops and events.
Program content includes Robotics, Coding and Minecraft.
Other role tasks are varied: developing new activities, curriculum development, shop organization, materials purchasing, coordinating events, taking sales calls, etc.
You’ll love this role if you:
Want to have a positive impact on kids
Want to share your love for technology and making
Dig a relaxed, casual, and fun work environment (warning: musical theatre nerds among us)
Did we mention having fun at work? We like doing stuff together – improv classes, escape rooms, and other staff socials
And we also take our work seriously, create space for each other’s opinions and perspectives, and pursuing success together
Learning the Role
You don’t have to have the full range of technical skills that kids will need for their projects. Other MakerKids staff will initially be present during classes to teach specific skills. You can learn along with the kids! What we want to see from you is the Maker spirit – a love of learning and proven ability to pick up skills.
Prior to teaching classes, you’ll teach alongside other staff as a MakerKids Instructor in Training. After that, you will lead classes and events as a MakerKids Instructor.
This position will start part-time with 3 to 30 hours per week (depending on your availability and our need), with the goal of increasing your hours and potentially leading to full-time employment
Work hours are flexible, but availability must include class times – at least one weeknight from 3:30 to 6:30 or 7:00 to 9:00, or one weekend day or half-day. Ideally you are also available for camps and PA days (summer camps, winter camp, March Break camp, etc.). You’ll also be required at some weekend events.
Our bright, colourful, playful Makerspace office is located at 2451 Bloor Street West, steps from Jane TTC station, which is a good home base for office tasks.
You’re a creative and energetic person who likes working with kids and exploring new ideas
You have experience leading kids in an experiential learning setting such as school, summer camp, museum interpretation, outdoor adventure, Montessori
Preferred if you are an Early Childhood Educator or have teaching experience
You have excellent communication skills, written and oral, and experience communicating with children and their families
You’re a Maker, with interest and experience designing and creating things, e.g. coding, electronics, robotics, Minecraft, crafting or some other way you entertain yourself and others with your creativity
You’re comfortable using electronics, computer software, hardware and various other technologies - or very willing to learn and teach yourself
Ideally, you have some performance experience, e.g. in the theatre
And also ideal, some customer service and sales experience too
