Hire a U of G Co-op Student this Summer or Fall

Posted on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

The Co-operative Education team is currently working remotely while still providing the exceptional service to which our employer-partners are accustomed. Jobs can be posted through Experience Guelph and all interviews will be conducted virtually by telephone or webcam.

Summer 2020 Work Term

There are still eager, knowledgeable and talented students available for the Summer 2020 work term.
Please note the adjusted requirements for summer work terms:

  • Students who complete a minimum of eight weeks (280 hours) of work will earn a co-op credit; this means work term start dates can be as late as July 6th though they are still available to start in May.
  • ​We support work-from-home placement solutions for you and your student to feel safe. Students and their employers are expected to follow the public health principles of physical distancing if students are not working from home.

In addition to the adjusted requirements, Student Work Placement Programs (SWPP) funding has temporarily become more flexible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here to learn more about the SWPP funding program, and other various hiring incentives.
