UBC Arts Co-op Program


Stay involved with UBC Arts Co-op after graduation and help current students follow your path to workplace success.

Hire a Co-op Student

You know first hand the value of hiring a co-op student. Talk to one of our coordinators about hiring your first student or how to build an ongoing partnership for recruiting students year after year.

Or if you’re ready to post a job today, jump straight to our 4 step process to hiring a student.

Mentor a Student

Provide career guidance and support to students in Arts Co-op. Help them identify career interests, share career options and labour market information, and set career goals. Become involved with the Arts Co-op Student Association Mentorship Program.

Or mentor students through the Arts Tri-Mentoring Program.

Share Your Experiences With Students

Return to campus and share your stories with students. We’re always on the lookout for alumni who are passionate about their experiences in Arts Co-op and would like to speak to incoming students. Let us know if you’d like to sign up to speak at our info sessions (each September) or pre-employment conferences (each November, January, and March).

Keep in Touch

Join our LinkedIn Group for the UBC Arts Co-op Alumni Network. Get the latest updates on exclusive alumni events, news and announcements. And of course, stay in touch with your valuable network of fellow Arts Co-op alumni.

Also remember to email and update us on how best to reach you as you move through your career.

Access Career Advising & Programs

After graduation, you can still access (at no cost; for up to 2 years), the many programs and services available through the UBC Centre for Student Involvement & Careers. Take advantage of one-to-one advising sessions or workshops to help you with everything from resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, career exploration, job searching, and networking skills. Or attend some of the dozens of Employer Information Sessions that occur each term.
