Cooperative Education and Career Services

Job Search Advisement

We are available to meet on a one-to-one basis with students and alumni on career and employment matters. These sessions are critical to developing individual job search plans and addressing the many questions and issues that arise during the job search process.  Send us an email on expcad@rit.edu to make an appointment.  

Job Development

We work hard to maintain and expand our working relationships with employers in order to create co-op job opportunities and to list job openings for our graduating students and alumni. These opportunities are accessible through our office and are sent out on your RIT email account.

Cooperative Education/Experiential Education

Cooperative education (co-op) is the most extensive and intensive of RIT Dubai’s experiential education opportunities. Co-op is full-time, paid work experience directly related to your course of study and career interests. We not only work hard to prepare students for this experience, but we also put a great deal of effort into generating opportunities and nurturing connections with employers.

Workshops/Info Sessions

We prepare co-op and graduating students for their job search through courses, workshops and orientations. Topics include: finding a co-op position, job search strategies,  resume writing, cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, dress for success, use of social media, how to work a career fair, on the job success, and much more. Please contact our office for workshop schedule.
