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.
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.
Employers large and small—in the public or private sectors—are encouraged to participate in this program.
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.
The University Advising & Career Development Center defines Third-party recruiters as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities for other organizations rather than for internal positions. This includes entities that make referrals or recruit for profit or not for profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment. Examples are employment agencies, search firms, contract recruiters, venture capital firms acting on behalf of their portfolio companies, and online job posting or resume referral services.
Third party recruiters may utilize Career Center job listing services, participate in on-campus recruiting and attend select career fairs. They will be required to verify in advance whether they are recruiting for their own organizations or for their clients. Third-party firms who are recruiting for positions within their own organizations must clearly differentiate those opportunities from their client engagements. Failure to abide by these third-party requirements will result in loss of access to Career Center services.
Third-party recruiters representing client organizations must:
