i'm considering doing it for psychology next year, from what i've researched it's proven to be beneficial, you get paid for it, you start to build connections, and you get to try different career positions within your field. Hope this helps :)

How do you apply for a Co-Op? I mean how would someone just hire someone with no experience?

Usually if you go into a co-op program your teachers and school will mostlikely help you find something you can do... plus if your going into a co-op from your program youre going to get some training before you enter the work field

My sister is on her first co-op term in the program. She is working at www.chickadvisor.com

But when she was applying she found a wide range of jobs. I remember a camp job - basically teaching people to teach LITs. There were some basic legal assistant jobs (she's doing polisci/legal studies) and I think she had an interview for a marketing job with a small fiberoptics company. The University also hires students to promotethe school and co-op program.

In reality you can find almost anything.
