Personal Job Search

In addition to applying for job posting through the Co-op Office, all students are encouraged to also conduct a personal job search. Personal job searches encourage you to be resourceful and use your personal networks.

Entrepreneurial Workterm

An entrepreneurial work term may be developed by the student.  In this case, the student starts his/her own business.  Probably the most complex placement, evaluation is based on the success of launching and maintaining the business for the duration of the work placement. The student will be responsible for finding a mentor in their particular field and will receive additional support from the Co-op Office.
