Co-op: Why Its Good for Business
The Southern Interior Roundtable Committee is pleased to host this online session focusing on the benefits of  hiring Co-op students. 
Join us to learn why hiring Co-op students is good for your business! This interactive session will provide valuable information about co-op programs, factors you may not know or have thought about, potential funding, and tips on how to onboard & support students in a virtual workplace. 
Join the interactive discussion which will apply to co-op programs in all geographies (not just pertaining to Okanagan College).  Bring your questions and come ready to engage & discuss, whether you have experience of hiring Co-op students or are thinking about it.
