Our students tell us that one of the best things about having a Co-op experience is the chance to test drive a possible career.
Rosa was a Nursing major who thought she wanted to work in a hospice environment because she liked helping elderly people, so she took a co-op position doing that sort of work. Poignantly, she realized that the hospice also cared for infants and children. She realized that she would be happier working in a nursing home environment, but she never would have discovered this without her Co-op experience.
Anthony was a Political Science major who was undecided about his plans after graduation. He took a Co-op position in a computer company and discovered a talent for technical writing. He went on to a career in that field—one he knew nothing about until he was introduced to it through Co-op.
