Current Students

Get a head start while you’re still at university

We strongly believe in the next generation of talent, so we offer many opportunities for you to begin your career while still attending school. If you're a third-year or graduate student studying commerce, engineering, logistics, sales, or a related field, you may be eligible to join Hilti for a four-month summer internship. 

 

For second-year students interested in learning more about Hilti and our summer internship program, we offer a Hilti Preview Day each spring.

Intern with us

Spend your summer in an internship that combines your academic knowledge with our industry-leading training programs.

As a Hilti summer intern, you’ll work alongside our team members nationwide on projects that are relevant to your education, interests and career goals. You’ll participate in events and trainings that expose you to all levels of management, including orientation with our CEO, hands-on training and volunteer opportunities. At the end of the summer, you’ll wrap up with a final presentation to senior leaders about your experience and accomplishments.

Summer interns work 40 hours per week and are compensated accordingly, along with housing and travel arrangements based on need. In addition to our corporate office in Mississauga, Ontario, there are many field opportunities across Canada.

Whether you’re honing your sales skills in the field with our account managers, overcoming technical challenges with our engineers or working on impactful projects in our corporate office, we’ll ensure your summer is well-spent.

"I did a bit of everything during my internship. One day I'm supporting engineers with calculations for a building design and the next I'm using Hilti tools and products to build walls to be burned in our firestop lab."

- Dan W., former Engineering Intern and current Division Manager

All internships are posted in August and September, with most interviews taking place by December and some continuing into the early spring.

We will review all online applications and select candidates who best fit our available positions for a first round interview. If applicable, students will be invited for a follow up interview with Hilti. After interviews are completed, recruiters will then extend internship and full-time offers. All students interviewed will be notified of their employment status after their last interview.

It’s never too early to start thinking about where you’ll intern. That’s why we host a Hilti Preview Day where students can get a glimpse of what to expect from a career with us.

No mundane tasks here

You will not be stuck doing the mundane tasks with a Hilti internship. For example, Vidha put her marketing studies to good use in our HR group. She’s proud to be part of something that’s not only innovative but is constantly growing. Vidha’s recommendation to other college students interested in a summer internship – “Just apply, it will be so, so, worth it in the end.” We agree.
 

Don't be treated like an intern

Brock put his professional selling and entrepreneurship classes to work this year and was happy not being treated “like an intern.” Brock talks about his time in the field doing demonstrations, selling products, designing an interactive retail display and learning from experienced account managers.
