Hands-on Work Experience from Co-ops and Internships

Co-ops (i.e., cooperative education are generally completed by a student over more than one or more semesters) and internships are a great way to supplement classroom work, to grow your skills and gain early leadership experience, and to explore different career options. Employers look for individuals who are creative, collaborative, responsible, dependable and punctual. Interns can expect to be treated the same as their employees and are an integral part of their teams. Also , the real-world, professional work experience gained during a co-op or an internship is a big plus when you are looking for a full-time position after graduating, giving you a significant competitive edge in the job market. There are many co-op and internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in industry, research institutions, think tanks and government laboratories.
