Postings become available on the first day of each job search term (the term prior to the scheduled work term). For undergraduate students, you will receive access to the co-op job board for the first time once you have successfully completed COOP1000 and have been deemed eligible to participate.
For graduate students, you will receive access to the co-op job board for the first time once you have applied to the co-op program, you have been deemed eligible to participate, you have attended the Job Search Kickoff presentation, and you have signed the participation agreement.
Jobs are posted throughout the job search term as they come in from employers. Our Business Development Coordinators work very hard to develop as many co-op positions as possible, however it is normal to see ebbs and flows in the number of jobs on the job board. We would also suggest conducting a self-directed co-op job search. Please connect with your Co-op Student Advisor to discuss this in more detail.
Most co-op postings will include bilingualism as an asset qualification on their job posting. In this case, you can still apply to these postings even if you are not bilingual. Please be sure to carefully read each posting as some co-op postings for the Federal Government will require applicants be bilingual and you should not apply to these if you are not bilingual.
Each co-op student will receive one in-person site visit during their first work term. All co-op students will receive check-in emails for all subsequent work terms that are completed. You do not need to wait for a site visit or your check-in email to get in touch with your Co-op Student Advisor if you have any questions or concerns.Please check your cmail account throughout your work term for more information on whether you will be receiving a site visit this term.
