The best part about my coop placement was the multi-layered support system I had. I had a direct mentor who was able to help me with day to day tasks and provide me with guidance during my projects. Additionally, I was assigned a coop mentor who checked in with me once a month to make sure that I was enjoying my placement and to ask if I had any interest in trying areas I was not being exposed to.
A downside to this coop placement was that it was in a rural area and I had to move for the placement. But, I was compensated very well for this move.
Incredible! Only suggestion would be more structured meetings to receive more opportunities to improve.
The department was very close and would have frequent potlucks and eat lunch together!
Make sure that you can explain why you are a cultural fit for the company. Demonstrate your problem solving abilities.
