QUESTION: Can I apply to a co-op job outside of my field but which I find extremely interesting?

Engineering --> Arts job.

This is not my first work term. Anyone done it?

  1. Yeah. I applied for an engineering job once, and I'm in arts. Got an interview, but not an offer.

    1. That's different, the soft skills emphasized in some arts programs are easily applicable to other fields. For engineering you generally have to show that you are using actual engineering concepts (i.e math) in your position (beyond first work term).

  2. ^ He still got an interview though, so it's not really any different. Though, it is far more likely to have more transferable skills the other way around.
