You can serve your organization’s mission through the energy and ideas of Carleton University students. Our students are ready to make change possible with you.
Carleton builds experiential learning partnerships—everything from internships and co-operative education to field placements and service learning—with local and international agencies, professional associations, corporations and community-based organizations. You not only offer students a meaningful learning experience, you engage a new generation of highly qualified talent, bringing energy and new ideas to your organization.
Hire a Co-op Student
Hiring a Carleton co-op student creates a positive educational partnership as well as an investment in your community’s future.
Co-op students bring exceptional talent along with enthusiasm to learn and apply new skills. With nearly 3,000 students in co-op work terms each year, we make it our business to prepare graduates for your organization’s needs.
It is also a great opportunity for your employees to offer their mentorship and guidance to those who are just beginning their careers.
