Fanshawe College is one of the leaders in the development of co-operative education at the college level in Canada with 66 co-op programs, more than any other college in Canada!
How does co-op Work
Work semesters are spaced out through the academic program. Work semesters normally are four months in duration. Students are usually paid at the same rate as entry level workers in that position at your company.
Apply the theory learned in college to work situations
Gain valuable work experience before they graduate
Develop and refine career plans
Earn while they learn
Develop job search, interview and communications skills
Learn valuable life skills through real experience
Co-op students are looking ahead to careers in companies like yours. They're not expecting to simply put in time on the job, but are eager to get involved and make a worthwhile contribution. As an employer, you have the opportunity to try out a student's capabilities without obligation or commitment to permanent employment.
