WestJet is looking to university students and graduates who can help us realize our vision of being recognized internationally as the most Canadian airline. We believe the future of WestJet lies with innovative thinking, continuous improvement, and active stewards of our culture––as well as the fresh perspectives of the next generation of leaders.

Our Student WestJetter program is a four-month, project-focused summer work experience. Undergraduates, as well as MBA students with a variety of specialties, are encouraged to apply. We have mentored students in a variety of business areas: software development, continuous improvement, digital marketing, media relations, legal, people relations, safety and treasury.

The New Graduate program welcomes resourceful, data-driven undergraduate and MBA students in diverse disciplines who are close to completing their degrees, to become New Graduate analysts in key areas; revenue management, finance management, technical operations, flight operations, airport operations, and information technology. During their first year at WestJet, the new graduate experiences the support of a transformational leadership community made up of Executive Sponsors, Direct Leaders, Team Mentors, Culture Buddies and other new graduates all starting the program at the same time.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of everyone in WestJet’s world by providing safe, friendly and affordable air travel. Our passionate, caring attitude is the foundation of WestJet’s corporate culture and the fuel for everything we achieve. If this sounds like the sort of environment where you’d love to learn and make a contribution, we’d very much like to meet you.
