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.


We make it easy to recruit and employ eager, qualified Laurier co-op students by providing you with a responsive, effective and free online job posting system. Follow our hiring process, dates and timelines to recruit from the best.

Send Us a Job Description

If you would like to hire a co-op student, send us a job description by the method you find most convenient:

If you do not hear from a co-op coordinator within two business days, call 519.884.0710 x4484 to confirm we received your posting.

Viewing Applications

Navigator is the database used by Laurier Co-op to post job descriptions, manage applications and arrange interviews. We will send you instructions on how to use Navigator to view applications and interview schedules.

We usually post job descriptions for two days. When students apply to your job posting through Navigator you may view applications after 10 a.m. on the day after the application deadline.

Select Your Candidates and Arrange Interviews

You may select candidates for interviews through Navigator. Once you have chosen your candidates, let us know the date, location, start time and length of the interviews. Our co-op office will arrange the interviews and send you a schedule.

Arranging Your Interview

We require 72 business hours' notice to schedule interviews. To arrange an interview you must provide:

  • names of candidates and interviewers
  • date and start time
  • length of interview
  • interval between interviews
  • length of lunch break

We host most interviews on campus and can provide lunch options. We welcome you to meet with students in our comfortable interview rooms. If you prefer, we can arrange interviews by video or phone.

Interview and Rank Your Candidates

Primary Interview Period

During the primary interview period, you will rank our students and they will rank you. By ranking students, you agree to hire the one with whom you are "matched."

The primary interview period occurs during the following times:

  • early February for the spring term
  • early June for the fall term
  • early or mid-October for the winter term

During the primary interview period each term, almost all interviews occur on campus. If you interview during the primary interview period, do not communicate with the students between the interview and the match.

Primary Recruiting Employment

After we share the results of the match with you and the students, we enter the continuous employment period. During this period, we welcome employers to conduct interviews either at Laurier or at their own offices.

After your interviews, let us know which students you agree to hire. The co-op office will extend employment offers to students directly on your behalf. Our office will let you know which students accept your offer.

Once we release the results of the match, we will post jobs without a match again. We accept job postings and arrange interviews until all students have found employment.

The recruiting dates below are subject to change.
