Our co-op program at ConocoPhillips has been our major source of new grad hires. The program has allowed us to observe the student’s performance over an 8 month term while they are filling a staffing need. Co-op students can bring a fresh new perspective to an existing team within our organization.

The Co-operative Education (Co-op) Program is designed to assist students in gaining paid, full-time work experience in their field of study, while fulfilling the short term recruiting needs of employers. Students make positive contributions to your organization through planned, supervised work terms.
As an employer, you can recruit bright, ambitious students who are proactively invested in preparing for their career. Whether you want to evaluate potential future employees or would like assistance on projects or short term coverage, co-op students can be an integral component within your organization’s recruitment strategies.
