How does co-op work?

Co-operative Education links the academic learning process with the workplace through paid, practical work experiences that are integrated with the learning objectives of the program of studies. Not only do these job experiences facilitate the student's vocational and personal development, but in return, your organization receives a skilled short-term hire and a dedicated talent pipeline.
