Recruiting and Work Term Dates

For your convenience, we have compiled a listing of recruiting and work term dates to help you navigate your co-op experience at Laurier. Further detailed information can be found in the co-op events calendar on NavigatorNote: Recruiting dates are subject to change.

Fall 2022 Work Term (September 1 through December 23, 2022)

Personal Job Search

You may conduct a personal job search any time.
  • Before accepting a job you find on your own, please send details of the offer to your co-op coordinator. A coordinator will let you know whether they approve the job for co-op.

Continuous Recruiting Period

We will post jobs for the continuous recruiting period until all co-op students have secured employment for the fall.

During the continuous recruiting period, some employers will contact you to schedule interviews. Please send details of your interviews to your coordinator, so we don't schedule you for other interviews at the same time.

If you receive an offer from an employer, please let your coordinator know so we can notify other employers considering you.
