My favorite thing about the co-op term was the flexible schedule, and company culture. Working from home allows you to be flexible, as long as you don't have meetings you can sleep in and work your 7 hours from 9-5 instead of 8-4.
In my specific role, my work relied on others that were not usually available or had many things to do. This was a huge challenge as I would have days where there was not much to do, it was very frustrating. I felt guilty for not doing much some days but at the end of the day there was nothing i could do about it other than communicate with my supervisors.
My only feedback is to create a plan for what the student needs to be doing, with lack of structure, it is hard for students to feel productive.
The culture is great, they regularly host webinars around diversity & inclusion, systematic racism, etc. I learned a lot about social issues and you could tell they really cared.
I would recommend Emera/NS Power, I would not recommend my position
It would all depend on the type of work.
Network as much as possible, with students and team members.
