 Cooperative Education: An Overview

Through Co-op, employers are able to select students best suited to fill their needs before those students graduate. Co-op students are hired on a temporary basis, and tested on the job for a predetermined period of time. There are two work blocks: January-June and July-December. Hiring Co-ops is very cost effective. You are not required to offer Co-op students employee benefits nor are they eligible for unemployment compensation at the conclusion of their work block. Unlike other temporary hiring arrangements, there are never any fees or service charges associated with our program. Satisfied employers can either hire these students as permanent employees at a fraction of the traditional recruitment cost or opt to select another Co-op student.

The Hiring Process

In order to hire students, we meet with you first to determine your needs and criteria. We then forward the resumes of candidates who meet your qualifications. You are not burdened with screening out inappropriate applicants. Next, you decide who you'd like to interview. If you find a good match, you make the job offer. You are never under an obligation to hire a students if you are not comfortable with the choices. We feel confident, however, that we have the employee you want.
