Hire a Co-op Student

The strength of the Drexel Co-op program relies on our vast network of employer partners providing valuable opportunities for our students.

When hiring students for co-op positions, employers are not only recruiting motivated and enthusiastic employees — they are serving as mentors, cultivating the next generation of talent within their field. Drexel students bring a fresh and innovative perspective to any company and many employers choose to hire these students after graduation. Participating in co-op allows our employer partners to actively engage in our dynamic model of experiential learning and have a voice in shaping the curriculum for the workforce of tomorrow. These are more than internships. Learn more about what we offer employers through our Employer Relations Team.

Does hiring students for co-ops sound like something your company would benefit from? Would you like to learn more about becoming an employer partner with us? Then reach out to our Employer Relations Contact team through our Contact Employer Relations page.

What do the employers say?


“The Drexel Co-op program is highly regarded by Comcast because we know that the students who come to work here are serious about gaining valuable work experience and could one day follow in the footsteps of other co-ops who have become top performers on our full-time team.”

Karen Dougherty Buchholz
Senior Vice President

Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House

“The co-op program works for us because it allows the students a greater number of hours and that lets them get ingrained in our programs and really have a sense of what it’s like to be in a workplace full-time. They become dedicated and connected to our mission. Those are the types of students we look for, that are looking to get involved with the community, and Drexel students really seem to have that desire.”

Sharon Brown
Human Resources Manager

Estée Lauder

“Our two co-ops in our last cycle in our quality assurance department actually developed an inspection application that we’re rolling out globally. They did all their own coding, created the app and presented it to the executive president of our supply chain. It’s been beneficial beyond our imagination. These students are unbelievable.”

John Frentzen
Assistant Manager, Talent Acquisition
