Career Development Office

Cooperative Education/ Internships

 

The Neumann University Cooperative Education Program can help employers

  • Gain access to a pool of qualified and motivated applicants

  • Meet Personnel demands during peak periods, for special projects and for
    on-going entry-level functions

  • Recruit, train, and evaluate potential employees

  • Contribute to the education of tomorrow's workforce

  • Establish a relationship with the Career Development Office for future full time
    permanent employees, and job



Becoming A Co-Op Employer

Once a selection is made, the employer agrees to:

  • Provide orientation to the organization, train and supervise the student

  • Assign responsibilities that are career related

  • Assist the student in achieving learning objectives and offer feedback on a regular basis

  • Allow time for visit or phone call by the student's faculty sponsor

  • Inform the Career Development Office of any concerns regarding a student's conduct or performance during employment

  • Complete a student evaluation and evaluation and return it to the Career Development

    Timelines

    Co-ops should run concurrent with academic semesters as follows: Fall (August - December), Spring (January - April), Summer (May - August) with some flexibility in beginning and ending dates. They should be a minimum of 12-15 weeks in length with approximately 15-20 hours weekly. Most, but not all, positions are salaried.  Most students elect to work part-time while maintaining an academic schedule; others choose full-time positions usually during the summer semester.

    Getting Started
    Provide the Career Development Office (by phone, fax, mail or e-mail) with a position description, work hours and rate of compensation for available positions.
