Interested in hiring a Speed School a Co-op student or graduate for employment?

 Students normally co-op with the same employer for the three alternating semesters and there is neither a contract for the employer nor a fee to participate. The employer’s role is to:

  • Interview Co-op candidates and select a student.
  • Provide full-time work that is relevant to the student’s major, appropriate for the level of student, and appropriate for a semester time period.
  • Provide increasingly challenging work assignments over the course of the three co-ops.
  • Identify an engineering supervisor willing and able to mentor the student.
  • Provide a competitive hourly wage (amount set by employer).
  • Complete a short performance evaluation of the student’s performance.
  • Review the student’s Co-op report.

The Career Develop and Co-operative Education Office will help through the co-op hiring process by providing candidate resumes, setting up interview schedules, and assisting with all logistical needs. Please contact Mary Andrade at (502) 852-3196.
