Recruitment Dates

Management Co-op offers three work terms annually: Winter, Summer and Fall. The recruitment process begins four months in advance of the work term. Each recruitment cycle consists of two rounds: a First Round, which involves a rank-match process; and a Continuous Round.

At the close of the First Round (i.e., after the ranking deadline), the Management Co-op office extends offers of employment to students on behalf of the employer. Employers do not extend offers directly to students in First Round.

All students who are not matched with an employer in First Round are eligible to participate in Continuous Round. In the Continuous Round, offers can be extended, through the Management Co-op Coordinators, as soon as the right candidates are identified. There is no ranking process in the Continuous Round. Students have 24 hours to consider their offer. 

The Management Co-op office coordinates all aspects of the recruitment cycle to serve the interests of both our students and employer partners. We welcome your job postings throughout the recruitment cycle.  

Please note the following important deadlines for the recruitment cycle corresponding to each work term:
