Posted by Science, Information Technology, Engineering Co-operative Education on August 1, 2017 in Employer news

Winter 2018 recruitment dates

Our program has grown significantly over the past three years, we've made changes to help us better connect employers like you with our students.

Beginning this September, we will hold two shorter rounds of Rank & Match (Round 1 and 2), followed by open recruitment in Round 3.

What does this mean for you?

  • A chance to hire sooner: The first Match takes place October 6, so you could have your Winter recruitment done by Thanksgiving!
  • It pays to act fast: Post your job by Sept. 28 to reach the largest pool of students.
