The Co-operative Education Internship Program provides opportunities for students to secure meaningful employment experiences through co-op placements. There are over 300 students involved with work-experience programs each year.
Below are some of the reasons why employers benefit from recruiting a CBU co-op student:
CBU students bring new ideas and viewpoints to any workplace.
Allows employers to train and mentor their future colleagues.
Provides employers with students that are eager to work and succeed.
Allows employers to address staffing needs due to vacations, sick leave, etc.
CBU students must obtain at least a 70% average to be eligible for the co-op program. This means that employers have their pick of the best and brightest students CBU has to offer.
Students are both engaged and passionate about their program and have knowledge and training specific to employers’ needs.
Whether employers are looking to recruit future employees or fill a part-time position, CBU students are the perfect addition to any business. The CBU co-op program is the perfect opportunity for employers to connect with a body of students. It doesn’t matter if a business is located in downtown Sydney, N.S. or in downtown Toronto- employers can rest easy knowing that CBU students are available and ready to work.
