Recruiting Dates and Career Fairs
Summer and/or Fall ’14 Co-op Positions
If you have a need for co-ops to start summer or fall ’14, please contact Ilka Balk or Marsha Phillips to obtain co-op resumes for students seeking an alternating, co-op positions. Co-op resumes are not necessarily on the Career Center’s Wildcat Career Link online resume database, but you can also post to the system, as we are currently migrating our records into that system. Please not that if you are planning to post, we would be happy to do this for you. If you are open towards a co-op or a summer internship, it is best to either post the position as a co-op and a second posting as an internship, or just as an internship, as the co-op postings are only open to students who have already completed the co-op pre-screening application with the co-op office.
If you would like to interview co-op candidates, we can reserve an interview room for you at the UK James W. Stuckert Career Center on Rose Street. Interview dates on campus are always available.
If your organization wishes to increase its presence in the College of Engineering, we will be more than happy to refer you to student organizations, classes, or other ways to showcase your organization on campus.
