The Benefits of Hiring a Co-op

Co-op is an opportunity for employers to hire talented, highly motivated students who are passionate about their fields and eager for workplace experience. Co-op connects classroom learning with productive, paid work experience.

  • A selection of high-potential STEM individuals for career positions

  • Better access to qualified candidates
  • Flexible staffing to meet fluctuating needs
  • More effective use of experienced staff
  • Low risk supervisory experience for your employees
  • Enhanced public relations
