Cooperative education and internships

Cooperative education, (more commonly called an internship), is another great way for employers to take full advantage of available EMU talent. Tied to a student’s academic program and often resulting in the granting of university credit, employers may observe potential hires and assess their performance in the workplace for between 200 and 600 hours, in either a paid or unpaid capacity.

At the end of this period, employers have the option of offering subsequent placements, permanent positions or ending the work relationship at the completion of the contract. Generally, cooperative education candidates fill positions requiring specialized skills associated with a specific area of study and don't require a degree. These students will have reached at least junior-level standing and have a minimum grade point average of 2.5. To post a co-op or internship position, sign-in through Handshake or contact our office directly.

On-campus recruiting

The UACDC is happy to invite employers to our campus to meet with eligible, soon-to-be graduates and alumni. On-campus recruiting can be tailored to fit the needs of your company and provides the kind of on-site context and face-to-face interaction that helps make visits more productive and successful.

To schedule a date for an on-campus recruiting visit, please contact John Bundridge at 734.487.4106 or by email. Want to get a head start? Fill out the visit plan used to create your interview schedule.

Who’s eligible for Handshake and other EMU-related hiring?

Employers large and small—in the public or private sectors—are encouraged to participate in this program.

Please note: network marketing companies are not considered “employers” by the EMU University Advising and Career Develop.m.ent Center and, therefore, are not eligible to participate in Handshake, EMU-sponsored or related job fairs, career fairs, on-campus interviewing, resume referrals, employer presentations, or sponsorships for on-campus activities. For questions or further details, contact the UACDC at 734.487.0400 .
