Student & Graduate Opportunities

Students from diverse backgrounds and educational programs contribute to the success of our company and our vision to be a global leader in accountable mining. Each year, we offer student opportunities across our business units, which are designed to provide meaningful hands-on work experience, and, most importantly, learn about their potential future with IAMGOLD. We recruit actively from a variety of universities in Canada, Burkina Faso, Suriname, and internationally.

Here are a few ways we’ve helped encourage students to pursue a career in mining:

  • Ongoing sponsorship of the Canadian Mining Games
  • Internship programs between Essakane Gold Mine and local universities and institutes.
  • Partnership with the Young Mining Professionals (YMP) scholarship fund to support the development of the next generation of leaders in the mining industry
  • Essakane Gold Mine Excellence Bursary, given to top students from Burkina Faso, providing them the opportunity to study at a Canadian university.
