Features in this issue:

The students in this issue of the Inside sCo-op have stepped up to the plate
in their own ways, taking the initiative to make the most out of their co-op
work terms. Architecture student Simon McKenzie ventured outside of familiar
territory on his past two co-op terms, arranging his own jobs in India
and Denmark. He shares his tips for finding the perfect job - on your own.
Students at Desire2Learn make an impact closer to home- they work on the
LEARN software that all uWaterloo students use. Our six incredible co-op
students of the year worked in very different fields - from Great Lakes ecology,
to cancer research, to space robotics- but each made a big impact,
thanks to their dedication and passion. They went above and beyond all
expectations and have amazing accomplishments to show for it.


The Inside sCo-op is a bi-term student e-publication released through Co-operative Education and the Centre for Career Action at the University of Waterloo.
