What Can I Do With This Major?


What is Cooperative Education?
Cooperative Education is an educational program that combines your academic studies with work experience in a field related to your major and career goals.
Cooperative Education is an opportunity to gain valuable job experience and build a professional looking resume.

Cooperative Education:

Helps you test out a career while working with professionals in the field.
Allows you to explore career options if you're undecided about a career.
Assists you in gaining valuable experience and become more marketable before graduation.
Helps to open doors to future employment.
Provides a job so you can earn extra cash for college expenses.*
Co-op is a non-credit, pass/fail course and will appear on your transcript with the name of your placement for future employers to see.

*Some industries provide only non-paying co-ops.

There are two ways to co-op:

Parallel Plan allows you to attend CW Post full-time while working part-time for 15-20 hours per week.
Alternating Plan provides you with an opportunity to leave campus for a semester and work full-time. During this semester you will remain a full-time student at CW Post and your financial package will remain in place. You can still graduate in four years by arranging your academic schedules carefully.

How do I get started?

Take the EEE-1, pre-placement seminar
Be on good academic standing
Have at least a 2.5 GPA.

The EEE-1 seminar is a four-week workshop designed to help you with resume writing, career research and job interviewing as it relates to co-op. Please see your academic counselor to register for EEE-1. If you are graduating within a year or are a transfer student, please speak to a Co-op coordinator to determine if this course may be waived.
