Sample co-op jobs

Shaking hands

These are all examples of co-op jobs that Accounting and Financial Management students have had the opportunity to apply to and be chosen for in the recent past.

Note: job postings are put forth by employers based entirely on their staffing needs. Hiring decisions are made exclusively by employers. The School of Accounting and Finance or the University does not “place” students into co-op jobs.

Students must apply to jobs on the University job posting system and be chosen to participate in the job application and candidate selection process administered by the University. Factors that contribute to students’ employability are the quality of his/her:

  • tailored covering letter
  • professional résumé
  • telephone and face-to-face interviewing skills
  • academic performance
  •  transferrable skills honed in previous employment and employment-like environments.

Junior students take on very junior co-op jobs. Senior students have the opportunity to apply to more senior co-op roles that may approximate the type of job he/she may be qualified for upon graduation. Co-op students do not manage people while on co-op. They are typically individual contributors to teams.
