Business Cooperative Education & Internship Opportunities:

Cooperative Education is an academic partnership in which the Schools and the employer join to provide the student with a method of learning which integrates work experience and classroom instruction. Students are employed in practical, paid or non paid positions directly related to their educational and career goals. Through the integration of academic study and work experience students enhance their academic knowledge, personal development, and professional preparation. Employers can work with qualified students with cutting edge knowledge to practice their skills in a real work environment.

See the list of local schools, college and university who can provide you the opportunity for Internship and Co-op Jobs.
