Whether you require short-term support for projects, seek new talent as part of your long-term recruitment strategy, or are simply passionate about experiential learning, hiring a UWindsor co-op student is a highly rewarding experiene.
Co-operative education and paid partnerships work by integrating a student's academic study with the opportunity to gain relevant, full-time, paid experience in their field. Alternating between work and study terms, students bring the latest classroom learning from world-class faculty members and can apply it to your business needs.

Acccess to top candidates. Screen full-time employees so that you can feel confident you're getting the best candidate for the job.
Add to your talent pipeline. Find star employees to hire after graduation. Throughout the co-op term, you can assess students' skill sets and test for culture-add within your organization.
Add fresh perspectives and new ideas. Co-op students bring a fresh perspective to an organization. They are learning new technologies, new skill sets, and provide innovative approaches that set them apart from other candidates.
Get work done. Students are available year-round for 4, 8, 12, or 16-month work terms (depending on the program), allowing ample time for students to be productive and valuable after they are trained.
Recruit with ease. We promote your jobs, coordinate and schedule your interviews, and provide on-campus interview rooms, if needed.
