As job descriptions are received from potential employers, job posters are placed in the Co-op Resource Room (E2-497 EITC). They are all assigned a poster # which should be referred to on all correspondence relating to that position. It is the responsibility of students to determine for which jobs they are qualified and in which jobs they are interested, and to prepare application packages for each.
Copies of each poster, or instructions for the location of posters on out-of-town employer web sites, will be available in the Resource Room. Additionally, all in-town and some out-of-town posters will be available on the Jobs tool. It is strongly recommended that students keep copies of all job postings for which they apply. These become valuable references when preparing for interviews and documenting interview feedback.
Each term, there will be several employers from out-of-town wishing to recruit. We have employers from Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, among others.
The Co-op Office encourages students to participate in at least one term out-of-town provided their circumstances permit. Before applying for out-of-town positions, students must commit to considering all offers very seriously. The Co-op Office endeavours to have all out-of-town offers made prior to the deadline for in-town applications.
Application package requirements for out-of-town positions will be announced each term.
Preparation and Submission of Application Packages
It is important for students remaining in Winnipeg for their work term to apply for an appropriate number of available Co-op positions. In general:
- Work Term I students with GPAs under 3.25 should apply for between 15 and 20 jobs. Students with GPAs over 3.25 should apply for a minimum of 12.
- Work Term II and III students can base their number of applications on the number and success of their interviews from the previous work terms.
Application packages consist of a:
- cover letter (signed),
- resume, maximum of two pages, and
- scanned copy of an official Transcript.
All applications should be uploaded to the Jobs tool on this site unless alternative instructions are posted on the Business Forum. The Jobs tool will only be available to students seeking a co-op placement in the up-coming work term. The deadline for uploading applications will be posted at the beginning of each term.
