Post a Job
If you want to post a job to reach the Toronto Met student and alumni audience, we are here to help. Whether the job is part-time, an internship, a short-term contract, a co-op job, or a full-time, new grad position, our job boards are open for you to use.
If you need to post a co-op job, we use the Orbis platform. Magnet is Toronto Met’s job board for all types of positions. You can learn more about both job boards below.
To recruit our co-op students, jobs for co-op credit must be:
- paid work
- full time hours (35 - 40 hrs/week)
- at least 12 consecutive weeks (16 weeks is the norm)
- related to a student’s area of study.
You can recruit our Co-op students in one of two ways:
Online: Proceed to create an account on our Co-op Portal.
By Email: Send us your job description in a Word document to email@example.com. Please include information on the term that you are hiring for (Fall, Winter or Summer) and the duration of employment (4, 8, 12 or 16 months).
If you have posted a job with us previously, we likely have it on file. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for the version we have on file.
If you have a job for a co-op student studying one of the programs in the Ted Rogers School of Management, please contact the staff in the Business Career Hub at email@example.com.
If you have an internship for a student studying an engineering program other than chemical engineering, please contact the staff in the Faculty of Engineering & Architectural Science’s co-operative internship program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
