“My co-op position as a Resources Planning Assistant with the Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority helped clarify my goals and interests. While creating a digital representation of each land-use project and mapping each location, I learned how soil moisture, type, elevation and distance from a floodplain or watercourse play key roles in the suitability for land use.”
“Spending two work terms in the Fitness and Health Promotion Department at Baycrest has reinforced my intention to specialize in occupational therapy for the geriatric population. I taught water exercises, developed fitness incentive programs and shared health information.”
"My co-op experience as a Financial Analyst with ConAgra Foods Canada made me realize that the type of work you get to do is directly proportional to the effort you make. Most of the work I did was special-project based, so it required independent thinking, and an understanding of how to gather information effectively and present it in an easy-to-understand framework."
“Working as a Marketing Intern for Smucker Foods of Canada exposed me to all facets of the consumer packaged goods industry. I participated in strategic brand development and creative promotions, including TV commercials and recipe booklets. I now plan to pursue a career in marketing, because it combines creativity with business.”
