Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Employers work with the Co-op Office to recruit talented co-op students and meet their short-term hiring needs cost-effectively. Co-op students from more than thirty programs are available full-time for four or eight-month work terms. Laurier has the largest business degree co-op program in Canada.

We make it easy to recruit qualified students by posting jobs, providing access to applications online and offering professional interview facilities. The Co-op Office is committed to personal, responsive service and monitors the satisfaction level of all participants.

Co-operative education allows students to integrate their academic learning with workplace learning in fields relevant to their academic and personal goals.

Recruit from the Best

Laurier's co-op program is available year-round and our students can begin work in January, May or September. Most of our students complete two years of study before their first work term. Our work terms typically last four months, although some students are available for eight-month work terms beginning in May or September (a few computer science students may be available for up to 16 months).
