"As a new student joining in the co-op program, I had a lot of questions and concerns as to how it will look like for me being part of this program. My resume, cover letter, and interview skills were at its bare minimum and had a lot of room for further improvements. So I was nervous thinking that although I am part of this amazing program, I would not be able to get hired by the companies.
However, throughout the weeks there were so many available workshops provided to ease the worries that I previously had. Taryn and Laura especially provided me with extra advice when I needed them and were always available for me. When I found a job posting that I was interested in, Taryn and I had a one on one, practicing my interview skills, and providing me tips that really saved me in my interviews. Everything she had said, had mostly come up by the interviewers, allowing me to be able to professionally answer questions and be prepared for the interview.
I would not have been able to get the opportunity of being a hospitality shift leader at Joey’s Eaton Centre without the help of the co-op program and the training/personal meetings by Taryn and Laura. I strongly encourage everyone to join and have the one on one help by them to really help excel on your personal opportunities for your career!"
