Hire a Co-op student

Access a pool of eager, motivated, and talented UFV Co-op students for your short and long-term human resources needs.

Co-operative Education (Co-op) combines academic studies with relevant work experience. Academic semesters alternate with work terms, giving students up to two years of relevant work experience.

Work terms are 4, 8, or 12 months in duration. The hiring decision is up to you, the employer.

  • “Try before you buy” provides you with the opportunity to evaluate potential full-time employees without obligation (many of our co-op employers hire co-op students right after graduation)
  • No additional cost to you, the Career Centre provides support and facilitates the hiring process

UFV Co-op students are available from the following disciplines:

  • Arts (Media & Communications / Public Relations, Research, English, History, International Studies, Psychology, Sociology, and Criminology)
  • Business Administration (Marketing, Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Library and Information Technology, General Business Projects, and Office Support)
  • Computer Information Systems (Programming, Websites, Servers, Database, and Tech Support)
  • Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Physics, Math/Stats, and Engineering)
