Co-op is more than just finding a job. It's finding your career. It's discovering what you want to do after graduation and how to get there. Co-op placements bring you paid, full-time work with top employers in your field of study. A great transition from university to the professional workplace, co-op also helps you network with experienced professionals and gain insight into your career before you graduate. This career-related experience really gives you a competitive edge. CO-OP ADVANTAGES � relevant employment opportunities with quality employers � career development workshops and mock interviews � one-on-one career development assistance � ongoing support throughout your work term � assistance with self-initiated work terms � volunteer opportunities that help build your skill set Did you know? � co-op students secure jobs sooner and command higher starting salaries than other graduates � we currently work with more than 100 employers from across Canada and around the world � many companies now use co-op as their primary recruiting tool "You gain competence and understand what is needed of you when you're in the real work environment. A lot of the skills you learn right off the bat in entry-level positions are applicable to other industries as well." Alex Luu co-op: Investor Capital New York, NY "I definitely have a context for everything I've learned. In the courses I'm taking now, I have real-world examples and I can utilize those in my tests and presentations. Because you're in a state of learning, you have more one-on-one time with influential people in the company. That was something another employee may not have the opportunity to do because they were not in that direct learning relationship." Kayley Fulton co-op: Compass Group Canada/Amec Fort McMurray, AB Conroy Ross Partners Calgary, AB "You get to test out different jobs and different careers to see if they're a fit for you. It gives you a competitive advantage. When you go into interviews, you have job experience, you have practical examples, you have the methodology and the processes that go along with those jobs."
