Summer Virtual Just-In-Time Hiring Meet-Up is LIVE!
Join us on Wednesday, August 19 from 10am-12pm as for the first time, as we offer a Summer Just-In-Time meet-up.
The targeted student groups are Seniors looking for Fall co-op and graduating Seniors from August. There is no cost associated with the event, but we do ask you to be recruiting for either a co-op or full-time position if attending.
New! We appreciate your feedback from our March 2020 virtual event and have incorporated recommendations into our planning. We are partnering with Symplicity, the host of WITworks, who is building a new Fair platform designed for better and smoother communication between student and organizations. You will now be able to incorporate whichever video platform you prefer to video chat with students, along with the opportunity to chat individually or in small groups. (Our preferred video platform is Zoom as all Wentworth students will already have an account and have the driver installed).
As this registration form will look different from past Fairs, we have created the following How to Register for the Virtual CO-OP + CAREER Fair video:
In addition to the Fair, Wentworth offers a number of other outlets to engage students:
- Post your openings in WITworks, where Wentworth students go to look for co-ops and jobs.
- Become a Co-op Employer: All undergraduate day students are required to complete two Cooperative Education (co-op) experiences prior to receiving their Bachelor’s degree. These are typically paid, full-time (32 hours minimally per week) and last for the duration of the semester. Most students do their required co-ops in their junior and senior year and an optional co-op in their sophomore year. Architecture students complete their required co-ops in their sophomore and junior years.
- Interview Virtually: We offer on-campus interviewing where you can review resumes of all candidates, pick the students whom you care to interview and host interviews virtually through the meeting platform of your choosing. We will do all of the administrative tasks. You can pick a date that would work for you and we will set it all up.
- Host an “Inside Industry Right Now” virtual discussion: Be featured in a Zoom session moderated by a CO-OPS + CAREERS staff member discussing how COVID-19 has impacted your business and new challenges that has caused. Not only is it an opportunity to stay engaged with students from targeted majors, it’s a way to share current industry information while promoting your organization.
