Benefits of Hiring a VIU Student

Employers participating as a Partner in Learning through the Co-op Program benefit to having access to high quality students for temporary employment, and having students who bring classroom knowledge and new ideas to the workplace.

Our graduates have been extremely successful in their career pursuits due to the high quality of their academic education as well as all of the applied and experiential earning incorporated into their programs.

Posting a Position

Employers can connect with students and post co-op positions without charge on our online job board, the CareerVIU Work-Integrated Learning Portal. We encourage you to connect with Hospitality Management Cooperative Education Faculty to discuss how you can hire a co-op student.
