We desperately need your help.
The current global economic downturn due to Covid-19 has greatly affected the ability of our co-op students to find employment for upcoming co-op terms.
But there is great news! This fall, there are huge financial government incentives available for employers. There has never been a better time to hire a UW science co op student. We have several smart and motivated science students who are available for hire for September.
Here’s where you come in.
We have some of the top talent available in the Faculty of Science, and right now, it's never been more affordable to hire our students. With unprecedented government funding support to hire students this fall, not only do you get top talent, but you also have an opportunity to have our students help feed your recruitment pipeline.
An Increased Co-op Advantage
- Access to Federal Funding (Canada only): By supporting a science student, you can be eligible for up to a 75% wage subsidies available (up to $7,500). Hiring a student can be ¼ or less the cost of a full-time hire and can be stacked with provincial tax credits
- Go Digital: Our students have upskilled and ready to help firms in the transition to digital workspaces
- Flexibility: There is so much flexibility in hiring a science student - you can hire for a shorter work term (8-16 weeks or min 280 hours with flexible start dates) and/or Invite a former co-op student to return for another work term
