Three steps to hiring a Mac Eng student

Through our engineering specific job board on OSCARplus, our team can post your positions, collect applications (cover letter, resume and transcript) and forward these to you via an email link the day after the job closing date. Prefer applications go directly to you or your website? No problem! Just let us know what works best for you! 

To post a job opportunity, please refer to the instructions for posting on OSCARplus

Post a job with us using OSCARplus or send us your posting in Word or PDF to engcoop@mcmaster.ca. 

Our team is happy to schedule your interviews directly with the students (including on- and off-campus, phone or video skype interviews).

If you would like us to set up the interviews for you, please email us or select the candidates and set up interview details through your job posting on OSCARplus. If you are interviewing on-campus, our team will be there to take care of you.

Once you have selected a candidate, our team is happy to extend the offer on your behalf. 

When extending an offer, we recommend a minimum 5-day decision window for students.   

Once a student has accepted an offer, we request that you notify our team by emailing us at engcoop@mcmaster.ca. This ensures there are no delays in registration of the work experience, and that your funding applications will not be delayed.
