When searching for jobs and while on work term, your Work Term Engagement Coordinators are your main points of contact. They’ll facilitate your job search and work term transition courses (COPB52, COPC98, and COPC99), and will provide additional in-person support during office hours and individual appointment times. During those times, you can get hands-on support with customizing your resume and cover letter, as well as advice on how to improve your interview performance. While you're on your work term, they're also a resource for you to ask any questions you have on how to navigate workplace challenges (in the COPC series of work term courses).
