Why should I consider the coop program?
How about eight months of relevant experience on your resume; potential connections for full-time employment after graduation; confidence walking into an interview with numerous examples to use in an interview? Co-op programs across the country have proven that co-op experiences lead to job prospects. Our Co-op graduates consistantly have a higher employment rate following graduation than those that do not. Why not put yourself ahead of your peers walking into your final year!
While on your co-op work term you can obtain valuable in-depth experience in specialized fields, developing your interpersonal skills, the ability to write reports, business skills and even the possibility of preparing and/or presenting seminars and supervising others.
- Receive a salary, statutory holidays and vacation pay;
- Develop a higher understanding of career possibilities and aspects of interest;
- Gain marketability for employment opportunities after graduation with the co-op employer and other potential employers;
- Stand out from the graduating class with 8 months of relevant business experience and the ability to reference strong business-related work in job interviews
