About our program

With access to some of the University of New Brunswick Saint John’s top business students, many employers use our co-op program as part of their long term recruitment strategy. 

The work term becomes an extended interview, allowing employers the opportunity to get to know the students capabilities as well as their “fit” with your organization.

Our students are strong academically and by taking part in ongoing professional development seminars, they are prepared to make an immediate contribution to their employer.  Most students join co-op as a way to learn about career opportunities in the Saint John area and plan to build their future here after graduation.
