Internships & Co-ops

Student employment assignments provide you the opportunity to become familiar with our organization, work style and company culture. Salary is based on the number of credits completed toward your degree and the type of program you are enrolled in. You must provide verification of credits, in writing from your school, prior to assignment. Co-op and internship programs are an important recruiting channel for C&S because they help us identify high-potential prospective employees. Participating students are often considered for repeat internships or a long-term commitment of regular employment. Our philosophy, simply stated, is recruit once, hire twice.

Internship or Co-op — what's the difference?
Internships provide real world job experience between academic sessions. Typically, most interns work at C&S during the summer months.

Co-op employees are enrolled in a cooperative education program at an accredited four- or five-year college or university, pursuing a bachelor's or advanced degree. You can work any time of the year, including part-time, and can be enrolled in either a technical or non-technical discipline. Most managers prefer co-ops to work a six to seven month period, although there is flexibility within this requirement.
