Cooperative Education

The University of New Mexico Cooperative Education Program, or what is commonly referred to as "Co-op", provides students with a unique opportunity to combine real work experience with their academic studies. Co-op students work as paid professionals in various positions that are degree related. This professional experience will be reflected on the student's academic transcript giving him/her a competitive advantage in the job-search process.

Registered students have access to Lobo Career Connection connecting them with hundreds of job/internship postings, actual employer contacts, and career/industry profiles nation-wide. Register today!

On-Campus Recruiting

Our office provides students and employers an opportunity to meet face-to-face. This time-saving, cost-effective service allows students to have their resumes screened by employers and be selected to interview on campus for employers' job opportunities. Students must be registered with our office in order to participate in the on-campus recruiting program.

Workshop Series

We host multiple workshops each semester focusing on topics such as resume writing, working a career fair, dining etiquette, interviewing, and many more. Furthermore, our CDFs provide tailored presentations for many student organizations, and undergraduate and graduate classes upon request.
