Benefits of a Co-op Experience
As more students become involved in internships, it has become increasingly important to document this type of activity. Earning credits towards your program of study is an excellent way to do this. Co-op can also:
- Provide you with an opportunity to verify and strengthen your career decisions during academic work rather than at the end.
- Combine practical application with studies (by integrating theory and practice, students find greater meaning in their classroom experiences).
- Help you to develop insight into human relations and other challenges within the context of a career and professional environment.
- Provide you with a smoother transition into career employment through increased awareness of the working world and work-related experience.
