Internship Opportunity

Thank you for your interest in our 2021 internship opportunities. 

ACSEA has a long history of curating and producing large events. Our signature events are spread throughout the year: LunarFest near the end of winter and TAIWANfest in the summer.

This year’s TAIWANfest event will be a mixture of virtual and physical activities, and with the impact of COVID-19, the importance for the world to reflect should be emphasized in everything we do going forward.

We are seeking highly passionate and like-minded individuals to join us. This is a great opportunity for interested students to utilize their education and training in a real-world application with real content and deadlines in many aspects.

These are remote positions until it is suitable to return to the office in BC.
