Co-Op Opportunities

GW's Co-op Program connects students with hundreds of area employers each year. Co-op experience add to students' career skills, clarify their career goals, contribute ideas to challenging projects, and enable students to earn money to defray college expenses.

Undergraduate co-op students work a minimum of two semesters for one employer on either a parallel (15-20 hrs/week minimum) or alternating (full-time) work format. All co-op work is documented on academic transcripts. Economics majors have worked as co-op students for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Ernst & Young, FDIC, Federal Reserve System, OMB, and Resources for the Future, among others.

For more information and a schedule of Co-op Orientations, contact the Career Center, 1922 F Street, NW, Suite 204, or view the Center's website.
