Many companies interview Co-op students through on campus interviews.
Dates of interviews for those companies interviewing on campus, and sign up information is available through ePACK.
Interviews are an essential element of the Co-op process – face-to-face meetings that could lead you to a great opportunity!
Before the big day arrives, learn everything you can about the companies youve decided to meet with! Company websites and internet searches of guides and references are a good place to begin. Talk with your Co-op Coordinator for additional suggestions.
- Please make every effort to keep the interviews youve schedule with potential employers. Any change of interview appointments requires a minimum 24-hour advance notice to the Co-op office. (Failure to follow this policy will result in a mandatory meeting with your Co-op coordinator.)
However, if you find that its necessary to cancel your interview, you’ll need to do a couple of things:
- First, notify the Co-op program immediately.
- Then, write a letter of apology to the interviewer – and get it approved by your coordinator within one week of the missed interview.
This is an important step – you wont be allowed to interview with any company until the steps above are completed. Unfortunately, if you miss a second interview, you’ll be asked to leave the Co-op program. Employers taking part in the Co-op program are looking for reliable, dependable students to join them, so please remember that whether its in the classroom or in an interview setting, you are representing the Co-op program and the University as well as yourself.
