Co-op Interview Day is the most important recruitment and placement event of each Fall and Spring semester for Co-op students and employers.

Historically, Co-op employers are invited to campus to connect directly with Co-op applicants looking to be placed. Student applicants have the opportunity through the Co-op Interview Day Sign-Up process to select companies of interest for interviews. The Co-op team facilitates all logistics of the day with interviews starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing through 4:30 p.m. Interviews are 30 minutes in duration with an hour break from noon until 1 p.m. for lunch.

*In the interest of health and safety, Spring 2021 Co-op Interview Day will take place virtually.* Student applicants will still have the opportunity to sign up for Co-op positions/companies of interest for 30 minute virtual interviews.

Co-op Interview Day is an effective and efficient process for both students and companies. We look forward to having you join this event!
