It has been a great experience hiring a StFX co-op student. They have helped us increase capacity on the team while providing us with a fresh perspective as we assess strategic initiatives and plans. In order to have a successful co-op experience it is important the employer partners with the student to understand their strengths and interests and ensures that work deliverables can be completed within the timeframe of their placement.

It has been very easy to work with StFX Co-op Education program. They have taken a genuine interest in ensuring both the student and the employer are maximizing the value of the co-op term and are available for guidance, and support when needed. The Co-op student I managed has been a great contributor to the team.  The student has been very passionate about learning the role and supporting on all types of projects, whether it was leading focus groups, analyzing data, or providing competitive reviews.
