NIC’s Student Employment Services supports and guides students through what, for many, is the most rewarding goal of their education: getting a great job. Whether you’re interested in hiring a graduate, a co-op student or providing internship opportunities,
the SES team can help connect you with faculty and students to meet your hiring needs.
It’s rewarding to help connect students and employers. Employers are thrilled to hire hard-working students who are highly-motivated and enthusiastic.
I am constantly getting positive feedback about NIC students in the workplace. The students get invaluable work experience, networking opportunities and mentoring that can help guide them on their personal career path. It’s hugely beneficial to both sides.
Co-op positions give employers a chance to recruit new employees that are flexible, highly knowledgeable and skilled in the areas of business administration, hospitality management and adventure tourism.
Student employment services is here to help create and promote co-op opportunities. Contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org and see our Co-operative Education Employer’s Reference Guide
