QUESTION:
Is it possible to negotiate a salary for coop? Im on my fourth coop term and feel that the company's pay rate for the work I will be doing is pretty low.

  1. Of course you can. Worse case scenario you still end up with the same salary they offered you anyway.

    Bring some info with you to negotiate with (your previous salary, average in your faculty etc.)

  2. You can try, but the problem is that you have zero leverage since you have to take the job regardless. A better strategy might be to find out before you get matched, or at the end of the co-op, negotiate it higher in exchange for returning.
