Great Canadian spaces, you will only be in the background. While Canada temporarily closes its borders to expatriate candidates, Pôle Emploi and Office franco québécois pour la jeunesse (OFQJ) are collaborating to offer internships for unemployed youth at a company in Quebec … in telecommuting.
For twenty-six years, the two job search assistance organizations have organized training courses in Quebec and Canada for candidates between the ages of 18 and 35. This destination and French-speaking province attracts young graduates who want to try their luck abroad. Since 2005, the number of French registered in the consular records in Quebec and Montreal has nearly doubled. According to the numbers of the Consulate General of France in Quebec.
But in 2021, aspiring interns will have to be content with a virtual expat. Due to the health crisis, this program is developing in the form of “telestages”, for a period of three months full time, in the areas of communications, IT development, human resources and graphics.
Opportunity or risk?
From his headquarters in France, the intern will have to work at home, with his computer, for a company on the other side of the Atlantic with six hours of jet lag. In terms of supervision, the trainee and his host company will be monitored by OFQJ throughout the period.

These remote work programs allow them to enrich their CV with a remote cultural experience. “

Candidates can use this time to try to find a job, especially if they turn 35! “
