A Great Choice in Any Economy

March 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Co-op students are an untapped resource that can make your business stronger both now and in the future — especially in today’s challenging economy with reduced budgets, cut backs, and layoffs.

The University of Lethbridge Co-operative Education & Internships program, assists post-secondary students in the faculties of Management, Arts & Science, Fine Arts, and the School of Health Sciences (Public Health) in gaining paid, full-time experience in their field of study.

Presenters:

Heather Hacior – Team Lead – Co-op & Student Professional Development – Faculty of Management

Stacey Gaudette-Sharpe – Coordinator – Co-operative Education & Applied Studies – Faculty of Arts & Science

They will present on co-op, applied studies & how to apply for the RBC Small Business/Family Business Subsidy now available to hire Management Co-op Students.

More Co-op Information

As a co-op employer, you are considered to be a co-educator. Students can fulfill seasonal/short term needs, complete special projects, or assist your organization’s staff to perform other tasks. In addition, co-op:

  • Gives you access to employees with enthusiasm, new ideas, current technical skills and a proven ability to learn and adapt to change

  • Provides a cost-effective method of meeting short-term recruiting needs and a low-risk opportunity to evaluate potential future employees

  • Establishes your presence on campus, strengthening relationships between the business community, government organizations and post-secondary education

  • Allows your permanent employees to concentrate on higher-level duties and responsibilities
