We have a thriving organization centred right here in Nova Scotia, and we want young people to realize they do not have to move far from home to have successful careers.”SimplyCast is the perfect place for students to expand their knowledge and share their ideas. The company fosters a welcoming environment where asking questions and making mistakes are encouraged. The paid internship takes place over the summer months and gives students the opportunity to interact with professionals working in their area of interest.
