Getting Started

The first step to getting a co-op is to attend a co-op informational session at the beginning of the semester. RSVP for a workshop in Handshake.

If you missed the co-op info sessions then you can stop by to meet with a co-op staff member during walk in hours, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11am-2pm during the fall and spring semesters (all other times by appointment).  

In addition to attending an informational session:

  • Apply to the co-op program by the application deadline in Handshake. Click here to view a step by step guide on how to create this application.
  • Research companies and apply to positions! The Career Center has some great resourses in My Career (Handshake, Career Shift, etc). Also check out company websites.
  • Attend Career Fairs, employer informational sessions and other industry events on campus. Go to Handshake and search events for a complete listing. 
  • Create a perfectly polished resume and upload it to Handshake. Meet with a Career Center counselor for resume advice or check out the Career Center's Career Search Guide for examples. 
  • Network with employers and alumni in LinkedIn and the Alumni Career Network. 
  • Meet with a co-op faculty advisor in your department or your advisor to map out a graduation plan with co-op to determine the best time for you to co-op.
