Accounting co-op recruitment timelines for 2017

CPA Days

These large scale recruitment events provides firms with an opportunity to promote their co-op and new graduate opportunities and network with students in an unstructured format.  Employers meet with co-op students and graduating students during separate time slots during the 4-hour event which kicks off a new year of campus recruitment and is hosted annually at Brock University’s St. Catharines campus.

Tuesday September 12 AND Wednesday September 13

Please contact Alesia Dane, Senior Employer Development Manager for more details.

What is the Ranking Process?

The Ranking Recruitment Process is used for the recruitment of Brock University Co-op Accounting CPA Students looking for a January work term.  By utilizing ranking input from both employers and students, the Ranking Process is designed to maximize employer / student matches.

Confidentiality of the Rankings Process

Rankings must remain confidential. To maintain the integrity of the Ranking Process it is imperative that no discussions take place with candidates regarding ranking decisions and that no offers are made directly to candidates before receiving confirmation from the Brock University Co-op Programs Office regarding the status of the rankings.

Our job board (CareerZone) will be live and visible for our students to begin applying September 1. We ask that employers send us their posting any time before August 31 to ensure it goes live at the same time as all other accounting postings and when students are most active on the job board.

  • POSTINGS AND INTERVIEWS:  September 1, 2017 – October 13, 2017
    To accommodate students’ academic obligations and to minimize their absence from class, on-campus interviews are encouraged. At the student’s discretion and availability, arrangements can be made to accommodate interviews at the employer’s facility. Telephone and video interviews can also be arranged.
  • EMPLOYER RANKING DECISIONS DUE: October 16, 2017 at 5:00 pm
