As a former leader of the Co-op Students’ Association I always advocated for co-op an excellent career option for other students. I did 3-4 class talks throughout the year. So I was called in to be profiled.
My top reasons to choose co-op
(1) Discover what your dream job is by exploring mulitiple companies, in different roles, in varying industries. I explored Financial, Retail, and Technology!
(2) Earn a great wage and graduate debt free… or you can spend your co-op money buying a used car like me
(3) Build a ton of relationships with different companies to increase your chances of a full-time job offer when you graduate.
If you haven’t had a 1:1 meeting with your counsellor in the BCH, do so.
They have an endless list of job opportunities and their job is to help you succeed.
