Employers looking to hire a Sheridan student for a co-op or internship placement
Sheridan has facilitated work-integrated learning for students for more than 30 years and is home to both Ontario and Canada’s top co-op students for many years running.
Students bring new energy, ideas and skills to the workplace and may be eligible for government incentives to cover a portion of wages.
Each year, over 7,500 Sheridan students participate in work-integrated learning (WIL) activities such as cooperative education, field placement, internship, mandatory professional practice and apprenticeship.
Students gain invaluable hands-on experience while they apply their classroom learning, get trained in an organization’s processes, develop essential career competencies and complete academic requirements.
Sheridan’s dedicated Career-Integrated Learning team can walk you through the process of hiring a WIL student and answer your questions. For any inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an employer looking to post a co-op/internship opportunity, please use the new Sheridan Works! platform to register and create a job posting.
