Co-op complaints By Ricky Thompson

source Andrew Regenstreich completed his application for an international co-op three months ago, looking forward to spending his spring semester in the United Kingdom. He was not looking into a specific job, but just wanted to experience working overseas. Now, three months later, Regenstreich has still not been guaranteed an employer, and has begun to take the situation into his own hands. “The school hasn’t really gotten back to me, but I think they are doing stuff to try to find me a placement,” he said. “I’m lucky enough to have my own contacts, and that’s what I’m presently pursuing most actively.”

here Regenstreich is not the only student faced with this problem. This past week an additional dozen undergraduates were informed of similar circumstances, said Leonard Morrison, senior director for employer relations.

In the past, students have been placed in international positions by means of the university’s personal relations, given that the process requires “a bit more hand-holding and cultivation than domestic co-ops,” he said.

We should have a slew of opportunities that come in nine months before someone wishes to even entertain the concept of going abroad,” he said. “Can international hiring firms predict their hiring needs nine months in advance? I don’t have the answer for that, but it’s worth exploring.”

“She should’ve been watched a little more closely, because it ended up being a complete disaster when she took an absence,” he said. “There had to be a chain of information or contacts so the students wouldn’t be shit out of luck, and that’s exactly what happened.”
