Although all of Sheridan’s campuses are currently closed due to COVID-19, our Co-op department continues to support student success by providing valuable work-integrated learning opportunities.
Our new Virtual Internship Program (VIP) provides a solution for any students who need or prefer an alternative to a traditional internship during the pandemic. The VIP offers the flexibility of three streams to choose from, the ability to earn your work-term credit remotely, the opportunity to work collaboratively and the support of our Co-op advisors every step of the way.
Sheridan’s Spring/Summer job board also remains open for students or employers who are seeking in-person or remote internship opportunities.
Student Success Story
Sheridan graduate Akita Cachia Costa will be the first to tell you that Cooperative Education can open your mind to creative possibilities and task-efficiency. As a graduate of Sheridan’s Bachelor of Illustration, one-year Arts Fundamentals program and the one-year Digital and Creative Arts program, Akita has the educational background to take on any job she desires in her field.
Kaye (Kawen) Mao has the privilege of being Sheridan’s first ever student to be selected for a Co-op work term with Google in New York City. Her strength as a leader quickly became evident as she not only led a team as project manager with Google, but also increased motivation and classroom attendance in her program, Sheridan’s new Honours Bachelor of Interaction Design.
Darrell Keezer is a big fan of Cooperative Education. As the brains behind Candybox Marketing, a digital marketing agency specializing in social media and online marketing, Darrell himself started out as a co-op student at Sheridan.
Graduating from Sheridan’s 3-year Marketing Co-op Diploma in 2005, Darrell has gone on to create his own successful company, employing co-op students of his own from Sheridan.
It's the right thing to do in business to give back a little bit to help provide somebody with the opportunity to get a taste of that real business experience, and to be able to share some of our experiences to help them get a job.
