There are different ways to hire co-op students at the University of Ottawa. You can follow our hiring process or run your own process. With all these options, we are happy to help you succeed in your recruitment efforts.

Run your own recruitment process


  • We post and promote your jobs: jobs are visible to students conducting their own search and to those looking for additional opportunities outside the CO-OP Navigator.
  • You run your own hiring process: students apply directly with you or via your career web page.
  • You set up your own interviews: we ask to be notified once an offer has been accepted by one of our co-op students, so that we can match in our system.


Your placement process begins when you want. Ideally, your hiring process should be completed and matched before our internal offer process.

  • End of January for the Summer term;
  • End of May for the Fall term;
  • End of September for the Winter term.
