During my co-op terms I was able to meet potential mentors and learn more about my industry. Everyone in the organization made time to help me get settled into my role and established a welcoming work environment. Working with the IT Engineering, Test Automation team, I was able to apply concepts I learned in the classroom to a large real-world system.
