Year-round Availability

Accounting and Finance students are available year-round for fall, winter or spring Work Terms (WT). Employers have the flexibility to make returning offers to students for a subsequent work term and may request that students modify the timing of their second, third or fourth co-op terms to accommodate.

Students can be asked to commit to multiple work terms at the employer’s request and discretion upon hire, so long as the revocable condition is disclosed in the job posting and discussed during the interview.

AFM Co-op Earnings

Employers determine how much to pay co-op student employees. The following pay schedule has been developed using information compiled by the Department of Cooperative Education and Career Action. It can be used as a guide to determine wage rates for your co-op employees.
