Students must be enrolled or recently graduated (up to 12 months after graduation) from a public Alberta post-secondary institution and be able to work in Alberta legally. Steps for students include:
Step 1: Once hired, the student will receive a Student Intake Form to fill out.
Step 2: As part of the Intake Form, the student must submit proof of enrollment or graduation.
Step 3: ASA asks the student to submit a 300-word writeup about their work-integrated learning experience for inclusion in the ASA provincial newsletter or Alberta Archaeological Review. The write-up must be submitted sometime during the last half of their placement before the last day of their term.
Step 4: Once the placement term is completed, again inform the ASA so that an Exit Form can be sent. The student and employer will fill out separate Exit Forms, and once both forms have been completed and returned to the ASA, funds will be released.
Step 5: You may be contacted at a later date to take a survey about your post-WIL program employment.
