Co-op open house aims to get word out
The University of Guelph's Career Services & Co-operative Education Services will hold an open house Nov. 10, 4 - 6 p.m. to inform high school teachers and counsellors and university faculty and staff about employment, career and co-op education opportunities for university students and graduates.
"These days, everyone is coming to university and asking ‘what am I going to do when I am done?,'"said Tricia Bertram Gallant, U of G's co-op education co-ordinator. "We want to let people know what we do for students in terms of the work experience and educational opportunities."
The open house will be held on the third floor of the University Centre and will include displays and discussions. It is being held in November to coincide with National Career Month. They welcome any university staff and faculty member, as well as high school teachers and counsellors.
U of G's co-op program has existed for 17 years and includes more than 1,000 students. There are more than 60,000 co-op education students in Canada.
