Students are welcome! Here is some great information for students:

Attitude: We are looking for that can-do attitude and eagerness to learn everything about the audiovisual industry. Be sure to tell us why you are applying and what makes you think you’ll be a great fit!

Installation Career Paths include Junior Installer, Installer, Senior Installer, Lead Installer, Technician, Lead Technician, and Field Engineer. There are also specialized roles they can grow into, such as Programmer, Support Specialist, and System Designer. While no two employees have the same training background and there are literally hundreds of options, some of our most successful team members have these certifications in their training portfolios: Audinate Dante Certification Level 1, 2, or 3, AVIXA AV Technologist Certification, Barco Certified Specialist, Biamp Training, Certified Technology Specialist (CTS, CTS-I, CTS-D), Crestron Certified Audio Technician, Crestron DM Certified Designer 4K (DMC-D-4K), Crestron Master Programmer, Extron trainings such as AV Associate, Control Professional and Control Specialist, Journeyman Electrician, and QSC Q-SYS Level 1 and 2. There are tons of training and development opportunities out there!

Sales Career Paths are full career paths in themselves, so are excellent positions for new graduates to start in as there is a ton to learn.  Our sales roles are designed with a lot of autonomy over their work so they can expect to manage the full life cycle of a customer from finding the sale, to initial consult, through project management, deployment, and then maintain any ongoing support. Students who have completed or are nearing completion of any technical, business, or even marketing degree or diploma programs are encouraged to apply!

  

Co-ops, Interns, and Summer Students: Matrix can work with your educational institutes program whether it is part time work during your semester or between semesters. These are all paid positions. Below are a few tips to help students and new graduates understand what we look for on resumes and in interviews:

  • Resumes: While students won’t have much work experience to add to their resume, there are still plenty of experiences we can ask questions about such as assignments, group projects, extracurricular activities, or any other previous internships or co-ops.

  • Be prepared to answer commonly asked questions. Tell me a bit about yourself. Why do you want to work here? Describe a time you exercised leadership skills? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

  • Tell Your Story. There is no getting out of the “tell me about yourself” question. With that in mind, prepare to tell your story and as you tell your story, be sure to relate it to the job you are applying to. This is your chance to make your mark and be memorable in the interview.

  • Arrive on Time: Whether it is joining a virtual interview having already tested your webcam and microphone, or in-person and considering time to get there, traffic delays, and parking.

  • Check us out: Go through the website, find out what we are about so you can showcase where you would fit into the company and what skills you should highlight.  Being able to talk confidently about the company and your potential role is a good way to show the interviewer that you want to work for them. 

Supporting Students: We currently sponsor the Jesara Nichol Broadcasting Scholarship through Mount Royal University, and the Jesara Nichol Student Leadership Award through SAIT for any students enrolled in any broadcast technology programs.
