Co-ops & Internships

Finding your Co-op

There are plenty of resources to help you find the right co-op or internship. 

The first step many of our students take is to meet with their faculty advisor or department chair. They can help you define your career goals and interests to help you determine which types of positions you should be researching. Faculty advisors also have experience working in various professional fields, so they offer great insight on where to look and how to apply. Required co-ops and internships must be approved for credit by your department chair or faculty advisor.

The Office of Career Services & Cooperative Education offers a variety of resources for students. The College of Liberal Arts has a dedicated Career Services Coordinator available to help with the co-op search, editing your resume, and preparing for interviews, as well as to act as a coach in your professional development.

The office also is home to Job Zone, an online job posting database. You can upload your resume directly to the site and receive notification of new job openings that match your profile and apply with the click of a button!  Job Zone also posts information on employer on-campus information sessions, interviewing schedules, and special events such as Career Fair and program-specific workshops.
