Opportunity Alert: UNB Continues to Seek Summer 2024 Co-op Positions for Students

The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is calling on employers to open their doors to co-op students for the summer of 2024. Despite the first round of hiring, over 75 Computer Science and Software Engineering co-op students from UNB are still searching for summer positions. These eager learners are available for employment durations of 4, 8, 12, or 16 months starting this May. 

Employers interested in tapping into this young talent can easily post job opportunities through the UNB co-op portal at Alternatively, job postings can be emailed directly to the co-op office, where they will be included in the job booklet for students to access. 

In a bid to streamline the hiring process, UNB has adopted a continuous hiring approach, meaning there's no ranking or matching system. Instead, positions are filled on a first-come-first-served basis, offering a fast track for both students and employers to find their perfect match. 

To further incentivize employers, UNB has highlighted several funding programs available to assist with the hiring of co-op students: 

those interested in the Mitacs funding, UNB has provided contact information for their Mitacs representative, Haridas Patel, who is available to assist with the application process at CSCOOPEMPLOYERS@LISTSERV.UNB.CA. 

UNB is grateful for the continued support of employers and is excited to facilitate these meaningful work experiences for their co-op students. This initiative not only helps students gain invaluable work experience but also allows employers to benefit from fresh perspectives and the latest academic knowledge in their field.
