Recruiting Events

Co-ops & Careers Recruiting Reception

Join us for a limited-capacity networking event on Tuesday, June 28 from 4-6pm to recruit April graduates, Seniors looking for full-time roles upon graduating in August, and rising Seniors searching for Fall co-ops. Registration will be capped at 50 organizations, so space is limited.

Weather permitting, the event will be outdoors with high-top tables and hour devours and non-alcoholic refreshments. Instead of a traditional Fair, the focus will be on networking and will be a more casual environment than our traditional Co-op & Career Fair.

We will not be able to accommodate any displays, so please refrain from bringing anything other than handouts. Students will be wearing business casual attire.

Cost is $400, and no sponsorship will be available.

To register, go to your WITworks home screen and look for the Event link on the far-right side. Or, click this link:

In addition to the Fair, Wentworth offers a number of other outlets to engage students:

Co-op Hiring Days

Join us to meet with students actively searching for a co-op. Connect with students through 30-minute info sessions and 15-minute one-on-one interviews. First: Host a 30-minute information session.

  • Each session will give you a chance to educate students about your company and the role you are hiring for. We encourage at least 10-15 minutes of the session be dedicated to questions from students.
  • Students who participate in an information session will have early access to scheduling their 15-minute one-on-one interviews with you.

Second: Conduct 15 minute one-on-one interviews with students who apply to your position in WITworks.

  • You must post the co-op position in WITworks.
    • Once your position is posted, Co-ops & Careers will work with you to set-up an interview schedule.
    • Students will sign themselves up for interview slots through WITworks and we will communicate with you your final schedule of students.
    • At the time of the interviews, all you will need to do is begin your virtual meeting.
  • These 15-minute one-on-one interviews are designed to be your first round interviews.

In addition to Co-op Hiring Days, 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 (30 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.
