Engage Co-op Virtual Networking Event - October 13, 2020

Seeking Multicultural Students for Co-op

The Engage Co-op Virtual Networking Event on Oct 13, 2020 is a recruiting event to increase the number of African American, Hispanic, Latinx, Native American and other underrepresented students who participate in Cooperative Education (Co-op) at UNC Charlotte.
Freshmensophomores and juniors are encouraged to attend and speak with representatives of co-op partners, learn what co-op entails and determine if it can fit into their academic plans. By completing co-op rotations, students gain real world engineering experience, manage full time employment responsibilities, earn a good wage and may discover first hand what job tasks they like and perhaps which job tasks are disliked. Co-op empowers and builds confidence. Visit Hire-A-Niner to RSVP.
Registration is required
