Students can only see Management Career Services Co-op and Internship job postings once they have been released to do so (typically during the academic term before a work term is set to occur). To be released, co-op students must meet the following requirements:
- Have completed all mandatory components of Co-op Orientation and e-signed the Co-op Education Program Agreement within Brightspace.
- Have gained MCS approval of their resume and cover letter.
- Have obtained the total required credits, including the required core credits.
- Have registered for the upcoming work term
- International students: Have applied for and received a Co-op work permit valid for the full length of the work term
Students are only permitted to see MCS job postings applicable to their specific work term. You can search all other job postings (including summer, full-time, part-time, volunteer, recent grad, etc.) in the Career Services section of myCareer.
Please be aware that once you have submitted a work term record for MCS approval, you will be marked as “not available – employed” for your other job applications and access to myCareer co-op/internship job postings will be suspended for the hiring period.
