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 3:30 p.m. Interviews are 30 minutes in duration with an hour break for lunch.

We are excited to host Co-op Interview Day on March 6th in the Ballroom of the Student Center.

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