Fall 2021 Recruitment

The Fall 2021 Engineering Co-op Recruitment began May 3 and will continue within the PlacePro system until early October. For your reference here is an outline of key information for participation in this recruitment. Please read this carefully.

Continuous Recruitment:

  • Please closely review all positions prior to applying. Contact the Employer Relationship Manager (ERM) (formerly Co-op Coordinator) for each posting with any questions before applying. You could be placed in any job you apply to very quickly.
  • If you interview and find a large disparity from what you read in the posting and wish to be removed from consideration, you will need to contact the ERM within 24 hours of the interview . You must have a compelling reason for the removal to be allowed.
  • Students will be granted approximately 48 hours after receiving an offer to make a decision, although letting us know as soon as possible is best.
  • Students may decline two offers. After that the student is required to either accept the next offer they receive or they will have to find a job on their own for this work term. The work term will not be waived should you fail to find a job after declining three offers.
  • We encourage you to look outside of PlacePro for work as well. If you find an appropriate position, please let us know as soon as possible. Please ensure you keep track of all the jobs that you apply for on your own. Check out these resources to assist you to find a job

Important To Know

  • The Co-op Program website remains the best place to access current information about the Fall Recruitment.
  • Job postings go live: May 3.
  • Application deadlines will be 10:00 PM every Tuesday and Thursday - the closing date is listed on the job posting. Read carefully.
  • Recruitment continues until all students are placed. While the anticipated start date for Fall term jobs is the first week of September, start dates may be delayed by some companies. A start date of mid-October would be considered acceptable in certain cases. Please consult an ERM if needed.

Important To Do Now

  1. Make sure you have an updated copy of your resume and transcript uploaded in a Portfolio in PlacePro.
  2. You are now able to generate your own electronic unofficial transcript through Bear Tracks. Upload it into PlacePro and create a default portfolio with only your resume and transcript. This should be completed by May 3. Please do not include unnecessary documents in your portfolio. We have found that some scanned documents (especially large ones) have caused transmission errors when we try to send them. Also, delete any outdated or obsolete documents that you may have on PlacePro.
  3. Access the Resume Guidelines and Template through the Co-op Toolkit (Note: If including GPA on your resume, calculate it based on the courses that you have grades for to date since the Winter semester is CR / NCR).
  4. Remember to log into PlacePro using uofastu. You can choose "Forgot Password" on the PlacePro landing page if you have forgotten your password.
