I have nothing but good things to say about my co-op term at BC Pension Corporation so far. Their work environment and culture is open and welcoming. I have been able to develop a lot as an employee and gain many applicable skills while also completing meaningful projects in the process.
Bachelor of Commerce, University of Victoria
Working as a Jr. Information Analyst Co-op, I had the unique opportunity to apply psychological concepts in the technology sector. Through this experience, I was able to identify a career path that blended my passions, knowledge and skills in a capacity that I had not previously considered. I have also been given the incredible opportunity to continue my growth in this career path as an employee whilst completing my degree! I could not be more grateful to BC Pensions for this experience, and I will continue to be an ambassador for the Co-op program.
