Welcome to the recruitment phase of the Employer+ Resource Hub. In this section, you’ll learn how to find and hire students through work-integrated learning (WIL). You may be familiar with some types of WIL, like co-operative education (co-op) or internships. The national association for WIL, Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL), defines WIL as:
“A model and process of curricular experiential education which formally and intentionally integrates a student’s academic studies within a workplace or practice setting. WIL experiences include an engaged partnership of at least: an academic institution, a host organization and a student. WIL can occur at the course or program level and includes the development of learning outcomes related to employability, personal agency and life-long learning" (CEWIL, 2018).
