Co-op Employer Hiring Process
5 Steps to Becoming a Drexel Co-op Employer
Becoming a Drexel Co-op Employer
The initial point of contact for new Drexel co-op employers will be one of our employer relations coordinators. Information will be provided on available programs and students, types of tasks appropriate for a co-op, and the benefits to your company. The employer relations coordinators will also provide an overview of the co-op on boarding process along with crucial co-op dates and a salary guide. The employer relations coordinators will create an account for you and assign you to a co-op coordinator.
Partner with your Drexel Co-op Coordinator
The Steinbright Career Development Center employs over 20 co-op coordinators, who are assigned to over 75 majors. Each employer works with a designated co-op coordinator who is responsible for assisting with all hiring needs.
Interview and Job Offer Process
Employers will utilize our online system to post positions, select candidates to interview, and make job offers. Each co-op cycle has three opportunities to hire students, namely A, B, and C Rounds. Please refer to calendar for specific deadlines.
Working with your Drexel Co-op Student
Employers determine which candidates would be the best fit for a position with their company. Once the student is hired, employers will provide the day-to-day structure and determine responsibilities of the co-op student. Co-op students are prepared to perform required duties similar to entry-level employees. Orientation, mentorship, and training can be provided as necessary to assist in co-op employee success.
Evaluation of Student Performance
To ensure continued growth of the program and student development, employers are requested to complete our online evaluation towards the end of the student’s co-op cycle. The feedback is essential for developing optimal student talent and assists university departments with integrating the practical work experience into the academic learning experience.
