Co-op Work Placements

Create Unique Learning Opportunities for Students

Thank you—business leaders and employers—for your interest in hiring Ƶ students. We believe that co-op work placements are one of the most influential opportunities that a student can participate in, and we are excited to partner with you in offering this experience. Co-op work placements provide students with a unique opportunity to gain certain experience and skills that they would not receive in the classroom.

Co-op work placements are also beneficial for the employer. We offer employment solutions by having over 200 talented summer and graduating students looking for work. We offer free services to employers such as job postings, interviews, career fairs and information nights. Co-op students are trained in cover letters, resumés and interviews to provide employers with professional recruitment experience.

Hiring is easy

  1. Send us your job posting online. Please include the job description, the application process, and closing date.
  2. Schedule an interview on campus.
  3. Hire the candidate of your choice.

We're always interested in creating new employer partnerships. If you know of a person or organization that we should be in contact with please forward the information to the co-op coordinator:
