Keeping your job search intentions up to date

Keeping your job search intentions up to date allows your co-op advisor to understand what support to provide you. You'll be prompted at three points during the term to indicate your job search intentions: 

  1. At the start of the term 
  2. After the main match
  3. At the end of exams

At each request, submit your intentions using the steps above. 

If your plans change throughout the term, follow the same steps to update your intentions.
