Interior design programs ask employers to hire Co-Op students

Published by Julia Salerno, January 27, 2011.

From the months of March through to May, interior design program coordinators from across the country are busy trying to secure graduating students with a Co-Op placement. Often a compulsory aspect to the program, Co-Op provides interior design students with relevant industry work experience and the experience allows students to integrate their education by applying their knowledge to the workplace, as well as to provide a valuable, work-ready design resource to employers. Salaries or wages for a Co-Op student are negotiable and most provincial governments offer tax credits for hiring a Co-Op student.

To hire a Co-Op student, contact a local interior design program coordinator at a University or College in your city.
