Jobs and career readiness

Employers hiring co-op students begin their recruiting activities four months in advance of the work term start date. Career advising and job search preparation training is offered to co-op education students during the academic term immediately preceding the students’ first scheduled work term semester. Students are assisted with the development of a job search strategy, resume preparation and interviewing skills. Guest speakers are used to explore student and employer expectations during the work term. Students become familiar with work term activities including the setting of learning objectives, work report preparation and employer evaluations.
