We are currently in continuous recruitment for the Summer 2020 work term.

Unplaced Students:

  • If you find a job on your own, please notify the co-op office immediately.
  • Your resume will be included in packets sent to employers offering suitable positions.
  • Continue conducting your job search independent of opportunities posted in PlacePro.
  • Please ensure that we can easily contact you via email or phone for interviews and offers of employment.
  • If you obtain suitable employment before the end of June you will be eligible to receive credit for the work term.
  • Looking for tips or advice for your job search? We're here to help! Engineering Co-op students can now connect with Co-op Coordinators in our virtual office. Click here for more information.

  • If you are no longer able to participate in the recruitment you must discuss this with a Co-op Coordinator.

Looking for tips or advice for your job search? We're here to help! The co-op coordinators are available to you on a walk-in basis during regular office hours - just stop by the Co-op & Student Services Office on the second floor of the Donadeo Building and proceed to co-op coordinator offices.

Students who are also scheduled for a work term in the Fall term (September - December) please refer to the Fall 2020 Recruitment Information.

Fall 2020 Work Term Recruitment

Due to the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in, we are changing how we run the Fall recruitment for 2020. We will NOT be using the rank and match for this recruitment but will instead be proceeding directly into a continuous recruitment (second round). This will commence on May 1 and continue until all students have been placed.

We decided to do this so as to not disadvantage our students in a situation where many schools are all competing to place their students in what we believe will be a much smaller selection of jobs.

We will have slightly different rules for this continuous recruitment:

  • Please closely review all positions prior to applying. Contact the 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 coordinator within 24 hours of the interview. You must have a compelling reason for the removal to be allowed.
  • Students will be granted 48 hours maximum after receiving an offer to make a decision, although letting us know as soon as possible is best.
  • Students may decline one offer. 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 two 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.
