Co-op and Employment

We know that securing employment is important to you. We offer a full suite of services to help you succeed!

Career Services offers employment services to Niagara College students.

Co-operative education and job placement

Co-operative (Co-op) Education involves the combination of academic study with work terms. Students alternate periods of time spent in school with work experiences outside the college. Co-op paid work terms provide students with an opportunity for substantial work experience that focuses on academic and personal goals.

How do I get a co-op job?

Obtaining employment is a joint effort between the student and Career Services, and learners must meet a minimum grade in their core courses to be eligible for the work placement. Co-op Career Consultants will assist in developing job opportunities, but ultimately the student is responsible for their co-op experience. Need help or have a co-op question?
