Hiring Process Overview

Hiring a Northeastern University Co-op student is much like hiring another employee for your company - with value added!

You will work directly with me. I will guide you through the hiring process. In addition, I pre-screen the students who apply for your position.

Reviewing Resumes/Interviewing Students


Making An Offer

When you are ready to make an offer to hire a student, we ask that you allow the student three business days to make a decision, if possible. If you require a decision more quickly, please make sure the student knows your timeline.

Thank you for your interest in the NU Co-op Program. I look forward to a rewarding relationship!
