Confirm your intentions for the virtual placement process through the CO-OP NAVIGATOR until 11 p.m. on May 11, 2021.

You may choose to " participate in placement" while looking for your own position, or while waiting for your previous employer to confirm your return, however there are a few things you must remember:

  • If you commit to " participate in placement", you must apply to jobs on the navigator that interest you, attend all virtual interviews scheduled through the NAV.
  • If you get an offer from your independent search, you must provide a confirmation by filling out the “found own form” by May 28 at the latest, or else you will need to submit a ranking for your first round of CO-OP interviews and possibly be matched. 
  • If you receive a confirmation from your previous employer that they wish to rehire you for the Fall 2021 term, we will need that confirmation (including salary and a job description if different from previous term) via e-mail sent to coop@uottawa.ca as soon as possible (before May 28) in order to be matched and removed from the first round placement process.
