Co-Op Programs

The following is a list of Co-Op programs offered through accredited colleges:

Co-op Education at Georgian College
Help at your fingertips!

Have you ever found yourself short staffed, but unable to hire full time? Georgian College’s Business Marketing Co-op Program can help! Georgian is one of the largest co-op Colleges in Ontario and our students are only an email or phone call away!

What is Co-op Education?

It is a process by which students integrate their academic education with paid work experience related to their program of study and helps students make the link between ‘academic theory’ and the real world of Marketing!

How does Co-op Education benefit you, the employer?

As an employer of our Business Marketing students, you are provided with an excellent source of productive workers who are available during your peak business periods for special projects, vacation, maternity or sick leave relief. Hiring a student can free up your permanent staff for more complex tasks or new projects.

Hiring co-op students give you the opportunity to observe an employee’s performance prior to making a permanent job offer. It also gives you the opportunity to train the students to your industry standards, skill level and expectations. This lowers recruiting and training costs significantly. Our Business Marketing students also bring fresh ideas and new technical knowledge to your workplace.

If you have ever thought that there is a shortage of skilled workers out there, or that students coming out of school just don’t have the skills you need. Co-op is an option you owe yourself to check out.

Co-op Consultants make the hiring process a snap! I will post your jobs, collect and send you resumes of qualified students, set up interviews at Georgian College or at your business, and follow through to make sure that everything is working out with your co-op students.

Here is a sampling of what previous co-op employers have said about Georgian College co-op education students and graduates.
