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 cooperative education 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.
