Becoming a Co-op Employer Drexel Co-op offers employers a host of advantages, including: an unlimited resource of motivated and skilled future professionals; six-month employment cycles that provide flexible scheduling options; and the opportunity to tap into the Greater Philadelphia region's most qualified job candidates before they join the work force. Consider the advantages that Drexel students offer participating organizations: Drexel Co-op students historically perform better since employer evaluations are part of the University bachelor's degree requirements. Co-op students are available to employers year-round, not just part-time or during summer breaks, thanks to Drexel's recurring six-month employment cycles. Co-op students attend a mandatory classroom orientation before their first employment experience. Co-op students reflect on what they practice in the workplace and how it relates to their classroom learning. Co-op students are considered full-time students while employed and are governed by Drexel University policies and procedures.
