More than 7,500 Northeastern students work with 2,500 co-op employers in the U.S. and 80 other countries around the world every year. Our students have taken advantage of a range of cooperative education opportunities with Seattle-based employers and initiatives, including:
Northeastern’s Cooperative Education (“co-op”) program is an academic model that allows Northeastern undergraduate students to alternate between periods of academic study – when they are in the classroom for a semester – with six-month periods of paid, full-time employment experience related to their major and/or career interests. Employers value co-op as an effective way to meet current workforce needs and cultivate their talent pipeline with skilled, motivated student-employees. Each year, over 7,000 students are hired into co-op work experiences by nearly 2,500 employer partners across the United States and around the globe in over 80 countries. Co-op employers include Fortune 500 companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, EMC, and General Electric.
Learn more about how you can build your talent pipeline as well as becoming a valued co-op employer-partner. Please complete our Co-op Information Request Form or contact Stephanie Pure at email@example.com or (206) 467-5484 for more information.
Northeastern University’s distinctive approach to integrating rigorous classroom study with real–world experience creates a far more powerful way to learn. Our students enter the workplace with up to 18 months of professional, career related experience. Our graduates draw upon their co-op, global, community service and research experiences to contribute critical thinking and problem solving skills that enable them to immediately contribute to the success of your organization.
