By Mahek Kacheria, 3A Environment and Business co-op student
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.
Co-op is what makes Waterloo Pharmacy unique: we’re the only co-operative education pharmacy school in Canada. Offering a co-op program is challenging and requires the support of the pharmacist community all across the country. Without employers to consistently hire students and offer invaluable learning opportunities, our program would not be possible.
