"When I first enrolled in the JMSB Co-op program, I wasn't really sure what to expect. Where will I work? Am I ready to face the real world? Have I chosen the right career path? Needless to say that all my questions were answered the moment I was presented with incredible opportunities and valuable tools to drive me to succeed both academically and professionally. Co-op not only gave me professional exposure to several different industries and work structures, it allowed me to apply the knowledge that I had acquired from my studies into a professional context. Also, my internships allowed me to build and maintain solid professional relationships with different business executives that inspired and mentored me as a student.
Today, as a Staffing Specialist for PepsiCo Beverages Canada, I cannot stress how crucial internships are in preparing students for the reality of various business sectors. I firmly believe that I would not be where I am today had it not been for JMSB’s Co-op program."
