General Information for Co-op/Internship Employers
Guidelines for Employers
Co-ops/Internships are assignments that provide meaningful work experience for FAU students, while fulfilling your employment needs. It is a three-way partnership among the student, the employer, and the Career Development Center. The Co-op/Internship Program serves as an invaluable career development tool. As part of their academic careers, Co-op/Internship students can alternate or combine their university education program time with on-the-job experiences directly related to their academic majors in business, industry, or governmental organizations. Co-op/Internship students may earn a salary and may be eligible to receive academic credit pending departmental approval.
How Does an Employer Participate?
As an employer interested in participating in FAU's Co-op/Internship Program, we require you to complete a profile in our OWL CareerLink database and signify that you agree to the Co-op/Internship Program Agreement (found in OWL CareerLink). Once your company profile is approved you may post the position(s) you would like to offer through the Co-op/Internship Program. Positions must last the duration of a semester and students must work at least 15 hours a week. When an offer of employment is accepted by a student, please contact Jennifer Blythe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
