We provide a flexible hiring model that helps infuse fresh talent and a bright innovative perspective into corporations, government departments and non-for-profits without recruitment deadlines or ranking. Once the job has been approved as a Co-op role, it will be posted on our General Co-op Moodle page that all co-op students can access.
Building a solid recruitment talent pool starts with integrating students into the workplace and we believe this can be achieved through Co-op.
- Submit job description for Co-op approval and posting to firstname.lastname@example.org. The job description must include job duties, start and end dates of position, the location of workplace, and rate of pay, closing date of position and method to apply).
- Receive and review applications, select successful candidates to interview, indicate your availability (with at least 24 hours notice). Co-op staff will arrange interviews on campus, via telephone, or video conference.
- Extend offers of employment via the Co-op Office. We will facilitate the contract and provide students 48 hours to receive and access the offer to accept or reject. The Co-op Office will keep a student's letter of offer as proof the student was hired for a specified period of time. Letters of offers must include at a minimum, start date, end date, hours per week, and any other information the employer deems important to include in the letter of offer.
Organizations should advertise their co-op opportunities at least 5-6 months before the start date. For example, if you are looking to hire a student in May, start advertising your position from November to January. A start in September, advertising from March to May. For a January start, advertise your position August to October. Organizations are encouraged to advertise early in order to have access to the largest co-op student pool.
