Getting Started

Link hires dozens of BCIT student contributors to write, take photos, and design for the quarterly magazine. We also hold an open editorial meeting for each issue, and all BCIT students are welcome! This is the best time to meet the team, share your ideas, and ask questions.

Staff Positions

Link and the BCITSA Publications Department accept BCIT student practicums and interns on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Please email with an expression of interest.
