Seven, Simple Steps to Employing a Northeastern Co-op Student
Identify your needs
A co-op director can advise you about what level and type of students are available, as well as what specific tasks are appropriate for a co-op and how students can benefit your organization.
Connect with your co-op coordinator
Each co-op job is assigned to one of the 65+ co-op coordinators, each of whom works with students in a particular college and major. Your co-op coordinator may also refer and cross refer students from other majors/colleges, depending on the nature and requirements of the job.
Co-op coordinators identify appropriate candidates and send resumés to you for review. You select the students to interview that best fit the skills for the position and communicate your decision(s) to the coordinator.
You may conduct candidate interviews either at your place of employment, by phone or Skype (if unable to meet in person) or on Northeastern’s campus (we have a state-of-the-art employer lounge and office space for conducting interviews.)
Hire, train, and oversee students
You make the final selections and after the student begins their co-op job, you will provide the necessary orientation and job training that is needed for the job.
Evaluate your co-op employee
You will complete an online evaluation form and exit interview at the end of the assigned co-op period for each student.
