Job boards

To help you find the right candidates for job postings, WaterlooWorks offers three job boards to choose from:

  • Hire Waterloo Co-op: Use this board to hire a co-op student for the upcoming co-op work term. Your posting will follow our hiring cycles to help you reach the largest number of co-op students in Canada. With support from our team, you will participate in our rank/match process.
  • Hire Waterloo Other Jobs: Use this board to post part-time, summer and volunteer positions, or co-op opportunities that fall outside our standard work term requirements or hiring cycle timelines. This board can be accessed by all students, not just co-op students. If you think this job board is a good fit for your co-op job, please contact your account co-ordinator before posting.
  • Hire Waterloo Full-time Jobs: Use this board to post full-time jobs for graduating students and alumni (not co-op students).
