Whether you’re looking for a job or on your work term, our team of co-op advisors is here to support you.
Before your first work term, you’ll be assigned to the Centre for Career Development’s team of career advisors who can help you search for your first co-op experience. Beyond supporting first-time co-op students, career advisors offer advice to ALL Waterloo students on career-related topics.
Once you’ve found your first co-op job, you’ll be assigned to a student advisor who will be your main point of contact during your work term and will be there to support you as you find your next co-op job. Student advisors are located all across Ontario (and elsewhere) to support students in different regions and have in-depth knowledge of the organizations and locations our students work in. Your student advisor might change based on where you're working, but you'll always have someone to support and advocate for you.
If you need to get in touch with your co-op advisor, you can find their name on your WaterlooWorks dashboard, listed under "Service Team" next to "WTS" (or "Work Term Support"). Please note that it may take one to two business days to hear back from your co-op advisor after you reach out.
