The Work-Integrated Learning Experience

Humber programs offer unique work-integrated learning opportunities to prepare students for their future careers. Students apply what they’ve learned in class and in real world environments through a wide range of academic, community and industry partnerships. These work-integrated and experiential learning opportunities may include field placements, practicums, clinical placements, co-operative education work terms, internships, applied research projects, or service learning.

What Are the Qualifications and Expectations of the Students?

What to Expect

A Humber Longo Faculty of Business student can fill any entry-level role in an organization and can work across a broad range of fields. Our programs teach a unique balance of practical, workplace-ready skills and advanced theoretical knowledge. The benefit to employers means shorter learning curves and greater results.

Student Expectations

Our students expect a meaningful challenge in their placement position and to work on projects that directly relate to their field of study. They want the opportunity to prove themselves and to gain skills in a practical, real-world employment situation. Placements should offer the chance to hone a student’s interpersonal, communication, problem-solving and analytical skills.

Duration of Placements

Our programs are designed to include a work placement at the end of a student’s program of study, either during the last semester, at the very end of their last semester or, as in the case of paid work terms and co-ops in between years of study. Some schedules may differ, and you may request placement terms that are tailored to your requirements.

What is Required From the Employer?


Our students can be expected to operate fairly independently, however, on-going contact, guidance and supervision are expected from the supervisor, and are recommended in getting the most out of the experience for both student and employer. A student’s work placement supervisor should be an experienced, full-time practitioner in their program’s field of business.

Guidance and Support

As an employer, you are expected to monitor and guide work activities, provide feedback on performance, advise on appropriate procedures and to complete evaluation forms. While the student can be expected to operate fairly independently, on-going contact, guidance and support will be mutually beneficial.


Work placement positions are traditionally paid. Co-op and paid work term compensation varies depending on student's experience, the responsibilities of the job and the employer's budget. 

Some students are open to unpaid positions. In this case, compensation in the form of transit passes, parking privileges or an honorarium upon successful completion of a work term are some examples of remuneration.

Co-operative Education Tax Credit

Employers hiring an approved co-op student may qualify for the Co-operative Education Tax Credit.

What is Included in the Hiring Process?

Resume Review

You have the choice to read through the resumes of applicants on your own or to work with one of our Placement Advisors to help you narrow your search. Our job board provides easy access to your pool of prospective students as they send in their applications. As well our Advisors can help you to narrow down your search to find what you’re looking for before making a decision.

Interview Process

We have access to various class and meeting rooms that can fit your needs if you do not have the ability to bring a student to you. However, most employers use their own facilities for meeting students and conducting interviews.

Workplace Safety and Insurance

As with all non-paid student placements, we require our students and employers to complete the Work/Education Placement Agreement documentation through the Ministry of Education. Our Placement Advisors can help facilitate this process, which is meant to protect everyone by verifying workplace safety and insurance information.

If the Fit Isn't Quite Right

Our work placement students are treated like any other employee in an organization. If the fit isn't right, please feel free to contact your Placement Advisor and we work together to determine the best course of action. We are confident that we will find you the right student for the job, but if there is a problem, we will help you deal with it on a case-by-case basis.
