Assistant Cooperative Education Coordinator – Multidisciplinary Graduate Engineering
Northeastern University is a national leader in cooperative education in which students alternate between academic study and work experiences. While the College of Engineering has had a robust program for undergraduates, the co-op program for graduate engineering students is relatively new. Starting in 2006 with a handful of students it has grown to over 800 professional masters students participating this coming year. This rapid expansion now requires more support to continue developing and growing the program. This is a full time, non-tenure track faculty position, primarily working with students in the College of Engineering’s Masters of Science programs in Telecommunication Networks, Information Systems, Computer Systems Engineering, and Internet of Things.
Specific responsibilities include:
Employer Relations/Job Development: The Assistant Co-op Coordinator is expected to develop partnerships with employers by working with executive, supervisory and human resources contacts; develop new and maintain ongoing co-op positions, and make appropriate referrals for students to apply to these positions; maintain a current understanding of the industry/field, employers, and positions.
Activities to support this endeavor include: site visits to new and existing employers, follow up communications, and continued efforts to develop new and enhance current relationships with employers.
Preparation of Students: The Assistant Co-op Coordinator will prepare students for the co-op search and work experience, both by teaching co-op related courses each semester and through individual advising meetings. Preparation includes teaching tools appropriate for co-op search (interviewing skills, resume writing, LinkedIn, professional behavior, and job search tools) as well as career foundations topics (such as ethics, mindset, mindfulness, motivation, and diversity). He/she will be the primary point of contact for a large group of students in preparing for co-op and while on co-op. The Coordinator will collaborate with college faculty, administration, and other co-op coordinators to help students integrate their co-op and academic education and share knowledge of the industry with academic faculty to integrate work-based learning with curriculum-based learning.
Service: He/she will also perform co-op, departmental, college, and university service as agreed upon by the Coordinator and Assistant Dean for Multi-Disciplinary Graduate Education of the College of Engineering. Further, he/she will be encouraged to engage in service opportunities outside the University to enhance the reputation of the co-op program and the University.
