Inside WITWorks: Co op and Job Search

Watch this video for walkthrough of how to search for co-ops and jobs using the advanced search function in WITworks. We also review how to set up a job alert after you’ve run your desired search.


In this video we will cover how to search for co-ops using the advanced search function in WITworks AND how to set up a job alert for your search criteria.

To search in WITworks, select Jobs and Search from the left-side menu. From the search page, use the filters found beneath the Keyword search box.

First, select the drop down for Position Type, check the box next to co-op, and click apply.

Then navigate to more filters, and choose ONLY two items
– your major from the desired major’s list and
– the work term form which you are seeking a co-op

While there are additional filters available, we recommend only using these three filters (Position type, desired major, and work term) to see the maximum number of available co-ops). Do NOT select industry as it can be unreliable in WITworks. We also recommend avoiding entering in keywords.

You can create a job alert to save this search criteria for the future use, and to receive and email with new postings that match your search selections. To do this, click on the Create Job Alert button below the search bar.

To customize your job alert notification settings, click on “Job Alerts” below the search button and select your desired frequency from the available drop down for your search.

To use your job alert to re-run your search criteria anytime, navigate to the same “Job Alerts” below the red search button and clicking on the saved alert you want to run.
