During this session (30 minutes) you will:

  • meet the co-op staff

Students will complete Resumes, Cover Letters, Student Information Summary Forms, and Work/Study Semester Plans and other requirements. International students are required to submit a Co-op Work Permit (info will be sent to students after acceptance into the program).

One-to-One Coaching

Job Search Workshops

All new Beedie Co-op students will complete mandatory Advanced Workshops. These workshops will cover advanced topics in business-specific resume and cover letter preparation, drawing on direct feedback from hundreds of current Beedie Co-op employers. Following these workshops, Beedie Co-op students should have the knowledge and tools to elevate their documents from good to great.

The new Advanced Co-op Workshops offer:

  • insights into what distinguishes an exceptional application from one that is average
  • "hands-on" experience customizing your application in order to get shortlisted
  • strategies to leverage and ladder your skills in Co-op and beyond

The new Advanced Co-op workshops are 1-hour long and build upon the essential knowledge and foundations we expect all participants to have acquired through CMC Passport workshops, such as "what" work search documents and interview to prepare. We will focus on teaching the "how" of building exceptional documents and your confidence in creating great applications
