Why hire UVic co-op students?

Simple hiring process

As a co-op employer, you'll have year-round access to a diverse pool of student employees ready to start in January, May and September. Our hiring process is simple and free, and our co-op staff are here to help at every step.

Highly skilled short-term help

Co-op students can help you undertake extra projects, support day-to-day business or lend relief to your regular staff during peak periods or when you need a bit of extra help. They are highly enthusiastic, study a wide range of subjects, have diverse skillsets, and undergo academic screening and a workplace preparation course.

An effective recruitment strategy

Many employers use co-op to evaluate students for potential future employment. One third of employers hire their former co-op students after graduation!

Become a UVic partner

Our co-op employers are valued UVic partners helping to train the next generation of graduates. We'll let you know about opportunities to connect, and you can exchange ideas and even undertake joint research with the university.
