Co-op/Internship Program to Host "The Perfect Hire"

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (October 30, 2013) – On Friday, November 15, Saint Joseph's Haub School of Business will host a Co-op/Internship Information Session for local employers. The event — The Perfect Hire — will be held on campus in the Hall of Fame Room in the Hagan Arena from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

"We would like for area businesses to learn how partnering with the Haub School of Business can help them better manage their organization's hiring needs," says Co-op Director Todd Krug, Ph.D. "There will also be an opportunity to hear directly from current employers and from the students who participate."

Cooperative education and internships unite the classroom and the workplace, allowing students to engage in real-world applications of their academic pursuits. Through these experiences (paid/unpaid/credit-bearing), students often report discovering and/or pursuing their professional passions.

According to Krug, there are several benefits to employers who hire Haub School students for co-ops and internships: 

1) Employers can rely on students to contribute to real workplace tasks.

2) Co-op and internship hires are fiscally sound.

3) Employers often use co-op and internship hires as a way to identify future talent for their organizations.

Currently, regional, national and international companies employ Haub School students through co-ops or internships, some of which include: AmerisourceBergen Corporation, Chesterbrook, Pa.; Bank of New York Mellon, King of Prussia, Pa.; Cigna, Philadelphia; Comcast, Philadelphia; DuPont, Wilmington, Del.; Johnson & Johnson, Pa. and N.J.; Morgan Stanley, Baltimore; NBC Universal/Sprout, Philadelphia; Philadelphia Insurance Companies, Bala Cynwyd, Pa.; and SAP, Newtown Square, Pa.
