Welcome to the Student Employment Services and Co-op Center! Here’s an overview of our many services:
Virtual Support for our Students and Alumni
In these uncertain and unprecedented times, the Student Employment Services & Co-op Center staff continues to provide job search assistance for our students and alumni using a variety of tools. We are available by appointment for individual job search coaching and resume review by phone or personalized zoom meetings. Please call 610 359-5304 to schedule a session. If you have general questions that need immediate attention, please email them to [email protected] and a staff member will respond as soon as possible.
Many employers are still hiring and we offer virtual workshops on Tuesdays and Thursdays to help you prepare your resume and conduct successful virtual interviews. In addition, each semester we will offer a virtual job fair and several industry-related employer information sessions and panels. The event dates will be listed on the College’s Calendar. Please note that in addition to our Online Job Board and Career Coach, there are several internet resources available including LinkedIn and Indeed with job leads and virtual job search tips. Your success is our mission and we know that remaining positive, adaptable and proactive is key to achieving your goals.

Co-op and Internship Program
Gain hands-on work experience through the Co-op/ Internship Program. Cooperative Education is a program that gives you academic credit for real-world work experience in your major and the opportunity to earn a paycheck. Internships also provide academic credit for
work in your field, and may or may not pay. Learn more about Co-op and Internship.
Looking for extra money? A job that’s close to your classes? Practical experience in your field of study? Consider Work Study, a program that allows students to work in part-time jobs on campus or in the community. Learn more about Work Study and how you can find a Work Study position.
