Every work term looks a little bit different, but planning ahead can help you stay on track and make the most of your experience.
To get a sense of your general responsibilities while on a work term, review our co-op roles and responsibilities and check your WaterlooWorks messages often.
Have a question or concern during your work term? Send a message to your regionally-assigned co-op advisor at any point - they have experience with your employer/location and can help answer your questions!
Your work term at a glance
After your work term ends
- Reflect on your work term - what did you learn? What skills did you use? What projects did you enjoy or not enjoy? These kinds of questions can help you to refine your career path and determine next steps.
- Tip: This is a great time to book a career development appointment with the Centre for Career Action! In these appointments, you can discuss your overall career plans with a Career Advisor, who can help you understand your skills, strengths, interests, values, personality and more!
- Verify your work-term status on WaterlooWorks, and your intentions for the next work term. Visit WaterlooWorks Help for more information.
