If you don't get co-op at Laurier, you can apply for internships in the summer.

You can get your CA hours after undergrad.

how difficult is it to get internships, and are they through school or is it up to you to find one. Also, how would i be able to get my hours after undergrad?

Please elaborate more

At Laurier it may be a bit different. Since they have co-op, they will not focus on internships as much. Some schools' carrer centres will help out.

So yes, you will pretty much be on your own. Some places might recruit at the university, but most won't recruit at Laurier for summer, they will do co-op only.

It depends on how connected you are, and a bit of luck. Being good doesn't hurt (good marks, ECs, interview skills, etc.)

Don't think of getting your work requirements as being while in school. Think of it as being done afterwards. If you can get CATO jobs while in co-op or summer internships, it's a bonus, you will be able to get your CA faster. But getting them after is perfectly fine, and many many people end up doing this.
