Penn State Schuylkill Co-Op is a partnership with employers dedicated to bringing the classroom and workplace together in some of the most sought-after areas.
This win-win collaboration helps students gain a real-world education while employers build a talent pipeline and a robust regional workforce.
Across the full four years of their undergraduate experience, students learn through integrating rigorous coursework with three full-time work experiences, and relevant career development training. Transfer students are eligible to participate in co-op, too. Employers benefit because co-op students are not just prepared for the workplace, they’ve been there. They graduate with both a diploma and a résumé!
The Consortium of Co-Op Employers consists of companies that partner with Penn State Schuylkill to offer internship and co-op experiences and give valuable feedback on student preparation. Penn State Schuylkill provides employers with a single point of contact and assistance with posting positions and recruiting and managing students during their internship and co-op experiences.
