After acceptance into our co-op program, you will be registered to a pre-requisite Orientation Canvas course where we will work with you through the semester to develop your job search skills to a competitive level.
Preparing for Seeking Term
To prepare for job seeking, the mandatory next steps are:
Step 1. Pre-Requisites
Apply for Co-op Work Permit (for International Students only)
You will need to apply for a Co-op Work Permit, which is different from your off-campus work permit/study permit. This should be done as soon as possible it may take up to 3 months for application processing.
Complete Orientation Canvas Course
The Orientation Canvas Course is an online course intended to help students understand Co-op processes, complete forms, learn how to enhance competitiveness, and tips for success.
Attend a Meet and Greet Session
The Meet and Greet session is a 50 minute introduction and orientation to the HSCI Co-op Program.
You will meet the co-op staff, learn about co-op opportunities, hear tips for success from senior co-op students, and an opportunity for students to ask questions.
Complete Bridging Online I (BOL I)
BOL I is a two-week online course that helps you identify, describe and transfer your existing work, study, social, sports, arts, community, leadership, volunteer and life skills to the workplace. This self-paced course is offered regularly throughout the term and can be completed on your own time.
Attend the Workshops
There are three required workshops (resume, cover letter, and interview/portfolio). These workshops are tailored for HSCI Co-op students, and our goal is to address your concerns, to explore current practices and ideas, and to provide a safe environment for feedback and revision.
