It’s National Co-op Education Week! From March 20 to March 24, the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) is running a social media contest to celebrate the growth and impact that co-operative education has across Canada.
With the world’s leading co-op program, Waterloo has many stories that showcase students and employers. “Without a doubt, my academic experience has been enhanced through co-op since I’m given the opportunity to apply classroom material to a real life work environment,” says Sahej Bakshi, a bio-chemistry student at Waterloo.
Using the hashtag #coopweek and #hirecoop, students can tweet, like and share their co-op experiences to @CAFCE_CoopWeek for the chance to win lots of fun prizes. Join us in representing the University of Waterloo by encouraging students to participate in the social media contest and be sure to follow @CAFCE_CoopWeek on Twitter to hear all the amazing stories.
