However generally it counts as a course for your University so that's a plus.
Does completing a co-op program during undergrad really improve your resume? Is it likely that the company you do your co-op with will hire you after graduation? Is it worth it to take an extra year to complete your bachelor's degree? #job-search #college-jobs #job-search-strategies #co-op
Hi, Emma: the quick answer to your question is a big YES. Co-op programs are great for getting jobs after graduation, especially if you want to work at the organization where you're interning. BUT, before you enroll in any program be sure to ask about placement statistics: where are grads getting jobs? how many are getting jobs? what kind of salaries are grads getting? how geographically spread out are grads after they graduate? (In other words, is it hard to get a job anywhere other than the location of the college?) You have to be a good consumer when considering these types of programs. I had a good friend who went to Northeastern here in Boston, for law school and got good jobs afterwards and is now a judge. So, if you're quite sure what you'd like to do after you graduate and there's a good school with a good co-op program, go for it!!
