The University of Waterloo is the only Canadian University Facebook hires co-op students from.
Yes, pretty awesome – Facebook is at Waterloo. During the University of Waterloo co-op application process in Summer 2009, Facebook co-op positions started appearing on Jobmine.
If you’re a University of Waterloo co-op student who wants to work at Facebook on co-op term, you can keep up do date with hiring on Facebook’s Waterloo page: Facebook is at Waterloo.
When Facebook started posting co-op positions on Jobmine, positions ranged from Marketing Analyst to Programmer. So it seems Arts, Business, Computer Science and Engineering UW students are all welcome to apply to Facebook.
Here’s Facebook’s official guide to the Facebook co-op interview process:
The First Interview
If you’re at one of the campuses we visit, we’ll see you in person (pssst…no need to dress up all fancy. Save the suit for the bankers.) However, if we don’t visit your school, we’ll probably talk to you on the phone.
The first interview is about 30-45 minutes long and usually with someone from the team. We’ll want to hear about your past experiences and current accomplishments, as well as any technical skills that we’ve said are a requirement for the job. At the end of the first interview, you’ll find out if you’ve made it to the next step in process, which are on-site interviews called University Days.
What happens next?
After the interviews, our team will meet to discuss all the candidates. These conversations are always full of tough decisions. We work very hard to get back to all of our candidates with a decision as quickly as possible. If you have any questions as you wait, please don’t hesitate to contact your recruiter.
