Benefits of Supporting Co-operative Education
By supporting co-operative education, employers can realize many benefits, including:
- Access to students willing and able to undertake special projects and task;
- Access to students year-round who have a fresh perspective to offer employers;
- Access to a student labour pool who can help address staffing needs. In times of high work loads and vacation, co-op students provide needed assistance to employers without requiring a long term commitment;
- A means of evaluating future employees in the workplace to ensure they are a good fit.
