Co-Op is the most important part of my education at Auburn. Work experience opened more doors than anything else.
Of all the programs I have participated in at Auburn, Co-Op was the best, most organized, helpful program and was most important to my future employment and career.
The experience was what helped me to get a job before graduating - INVALUABLE!
Industrial & Systems Engineering
I received experience in the work force which helped me pay for college.
It gave me real-life experience in a corporate environment that I feel gave me a step up on everyone else entering the workforce.
Information Systems Management and Finance
The Co-Op Program helped me develop skills, such as public speaking and team work, that I otherwise would not have learned in school alone.
I learned how to apply what I was studying to my job, learned time management and how to work with others. Co-Op helped me to learn how to interview better and to know and understand what employers expect.
I was hired because of experience...Best idea yet in college!
This was my only related work, experience, so without this experience, I would have had nothing to set me apart from others in my field.
Computer Engineering/Electrical Engineering
This was one of the best experiences I have done. My resume is much stronger.
My co-op job helped me decide what I wanted to do and gave me work experience that I could not have gained in school.
Co-Op helped me to learn to have a proactive approach to work.
Entrepreneurship & Family Business
A lot of people graduate with engineering degrees, but not everyone has experience behind their diploma. That will make me stand out from the pack.
