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.

  • POSTINGS AND INTERVIEWS:  Postings can go “live” in August. Interviews can take place on September 18, 2020 – October 16, 2020. The last day to interview for this round is October 16.
    This process involves job postings, interviews and networking events. All employer rankings MUST be submitted either on CareerZone or to our office no later than 5:00 pm on October 19.
    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 19, 2020 at 5:00 pm
    Submit them to your CareerZone account. In CareerZone, click Co-op and then click Rank and Match.
