Hiring is a gamble.
Let's beat the odds together.
COOP connects industry partners to excellent candidates from diverse local communities. No hassle. No fee. No risk. Here's how:
Community: First, we select a cohort of passionate, ambitious graduates from CUNY and CalState. Many were "first-gen" college students—and they all know a thing or two about beating the odds.
Experience: Next, cohorts get a crash course in digital skills (Excel, Web Analytics, SEO, SEM, and Paid Social) during 200+ hours of evening workshops, including a hands-on client project.
Opportunity: Finally, we help partners interview and hire great candidates. Some start as interns, others as full-time employees—and all are ready to contribute on day one.
Best part? We stay connected, offering ongoing professional development workshops and the chance to "pay it forward" as future COOP coaches. Want to get involved? Please contact our Partnerships Manager anytime: Linda Nguyen • linkedin • firstname.lastname@example.org
We recruit motivated grads from city and state colleges—and we reflect the boisterous diversity of these fine public institutions.
