"I appreciate the fact that they fully utilized us to our potential and gave us a lot of responsibilities ."
— Natasha Siao Vee Sin, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
"I would definitely recommend every student to apply for a co-op program. It is the perfect way to prepare a student to the real world and even to make sure they are in the right field. I personally realized through my work terms that I made the right decision as to my career. Doing well in a certain subject at school does not necessarily mean you would love the job associated with it."
— Tam Mach, KPMG
