How to develop a partnership with the UTC Co-op Office
Contact the Co-op Office.
Establishing a co-op program partnership is as easy as contacting
the UTC Co-op Office. A coordinator will answer your questions
and explain how the program works and send you a co-op employer
packet. It will provide detailed information on the majors, course offerings,
and other important information. You may also set up a meeting with the coordinators
at the Co-op Office, or at your work site.
Provide the Co-op Office with information about your organization
and position openings.
The Co-op Office needs information (company brochures, etc.)
on your organization, the name of a contact person, as well as a detailed
job description. This description should include the major and number of
students needed, and the semester you would like the student(s) to begin.
An Employer Survey is included in your packet and can be completed and mailed
or faxed to the office. This information is used to recruit students. The
more specific you are the more selective is our screening process. You may
wish to include specific requirements, such as year in school, technical
skills, or GPA. (Link to job request survey)
Review the student information sent by the Co-op Office.
Students review job descriptions and choose the ones that interest them.
For each interested student, a recommendation, resume and transcript will
be faxed to you. Review this information and contact the students you would
like to interview, or if you prefer, we can contact them for you.
Interview applicants and make your choice.
The interview process will depend on the approach you wish to take. Interviews
can be on-site, campus or phone interviews. The Co-op Office
can assist by arranging for interview rooms in the University Center and/or
setting up an interview schedule. If you are from out of town, the office
can also assist with travel and hotel arrangements.
