Find a candidate

Use Eastern Michigan University’s Resume Referral Service. You can access qualified candidates through Handshake or email or call us with your job vacancy and request profiles of qualified candidates from our database. Based on the criteria/qualifications you submit, we will conduct a search and send you candidate resumes within 48 hours.

Positions may also be posted at Handshake, or we can assist you with this process.

Cooperative Education and Internships

Positions that require specialized skills associated with a specific major area of study that do not require a degree, may be processed through our Cooperative Education program. Generally, candidates will have reached at least junior class level standing and have a minimum 2.5 grade point average.

Benefits to employers of co-op students include the opportunity to observe the employee’s performance for between 200 and 600 hours, with the option to offer subsequent co-ops, a permanent position or end the working relationship thereafter.

The terms "cooperative education" and "internship" are often used interchangeably. They are both tied to a student’s academic program and credit is often given at the conclusion of the experience, which may be paid or unpaid.

To post a co-op or internship position with us, use Handshake or contact our office.
