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 co-op info session in Handshake.

In addition to attending an informational session:

  • Research companies and apply to positions! The Post Graduate Planning & Expereintial Education office 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 Post Graduate Planning & Experiential Learning counselor for resume advice or stop by the co-op office during walk in hours on Wednesdays and Thursday between 11-2 for help. 
  • 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.
