What people are saying...

  • Hootsuite is a big believer in the co-op program. With around 15 co-ops per semester (50% from UBC) we see the value in growing and providing real-world work opportunities to the next generation of local talent. All our co-ops are eager to learn, and contribute not just to our technical roadmap, but are also big contributors to our culture. Seeing co-op experience on a resume shows me that a candidate is ready for the workforce, and it’s always a pleasure seeing a co-op return in a full-time role once their studies are finished.

  • I would happily recommend UBC Arts Co-op to other employers, and proudly recommend that RBC Ventures continue to look for talent from UBC for future co-ops and student opportunities. It’s been a wonderful experience and I look forward to fostering the relationship even further!

  • Our longstanding and valued partnership with UBC Co-op is built on connecting students with opportunities to find their purpose. Interns are placed across our various lines of business and work within cross-functional teams, making real contributions to the bottom line. We have dozens of UBC students join us each cohort and each one has played a vital role in shaping our SAP Internship Experience Project into a rich community that’s building experienced, inclusive, and dynamic leaders.
