York's Co-op Program works with employers to develop co-op opportunities and posts them on the Career Centre's online system (opens in a new window). To access co-op job postings on the system, please follow these steps:
- If you are already registered with the Career Centre, log into the Career Centre's online system (opens in a new window) using your passport York username and password.
- Once you have logged in, go to the “Job Postings” section.
- Search for co-op postings by choosing “York Co-op Program” for the “Position Type”.
- You may also search for co-op positions using additional search criteria on the same page or on the “Advanced Search” tab.
Please Note: Co-op Program job postings are only visible to current co-op students. If you do not complete the mandatory co-op career and job support services by the deadlines indicated, access to co-op job postings will be removed.
Co-op Job Applications
Apply for co-op positions well before the expiry date listed on the job posting. Don't leave it until the last minute, as positions can be filled by the employer before the posting is set to expire. Remember, these co-op opportunities may also be posted at other institutions so you are not only competing with other York students but also with students from other Canadian universities.
Applying for Co-op Positions
Please read the application instructions on the job posting carefully and apply in the manner specified under "How to Apply" to be considered for the position. The instructions may ask you to apply directly on the employer's company website. Other methods include uploading your resumé and application on the Career Centre's job posting system (see details below) or emailing the employer contact directly.
Submitting Documents on the Career Centre's Job Posting System
If the employer has requested that you submit your application online, you will see drop-down boxes listing all of your uploaded documents from the Career Centre's online system in the upper right corner of the job posting. You must upload at least one resumé in the documents section in order to apply for co-op jobs online. Employers may request a resumé, cover letter, unofficial transcript, or other documents.
