Beginning in 2020, you’ll see a new tab within each co-op job posting in WaterlooWorks where students and employers can view work term ratings submitted anonymously by students over past work terms. This tab will also contain a hiring history for the organization, if available.

For my first co-op term, I landed an international job opportunity with Kaizen Institute in my hometown Ahmedabad, India. I worked at their regional marketing division for India & Africa as the Business Development and Marketing Associate.
Adaptability was the theme of the term. From starting work the morning after a 30-hour journey to travelling to another city for a conference jet-lagged, this experience gave me the conﬁdence to overcome so many obstacles.
