How important are job co-op opportunities to employment after graduation?

I am interested in civil engineering. Some of the colleges I have looked at require a co-op, and others do not. It seems like a co-op would be a good idea. Is there any hard data on co-op opportunities and whether they led to employment quicker? #engineering #career #services

Simon’s Answer

Take the co-opportunity if possible. When hiring engineers I always looked on it favorably. It seems to separate the ambitions candidates. Good luck.

Co-op programs are very useful not only for increasing your "employability" after school, but for what you can learn "on the job".
My advise, if you can co-op, do it. The extra year in school is well worth it, as you'll be so much better prepared for the workforce.
