There’s a classic conundrum that recent college graduates have to untangle: Employers want candidates who have work experience. But how do you get experience without a job?
That’s easy. Get a co-op.
There’s a reason RIT is ranked 11th among top schools for co-op and internship programs by U.S. News & World Report (2021). Our cooperative education program is designed to provide you with career experience–early and often–to a variety of industries and environments. And, with co-op built into most programs, and available and encouraged in all majors, you’ll gain the experience that sets you apart–experience that employers look for in their next top hires.
