Education and Meaningful Work Experience Should be Accessible to All – but it isn’t…
As much of 90% of students from post-secondary schools, graduate without any real work experience in their field (based on calculated figures from placement and student count) . This ultimately means lower employment, salaries and job satisfaction for the new graduate without a co-op or internship experience. Co-op your way is bringing the job search and interview support received by students to help them find meaningful experience before and after graduation.
Cost of Co-op Programs Can be Restrictive
Surveying available data across the GTA schools charge anywhere from $500-$1,200 per work term with an average of 3 work terms per co-op program, this means students are paying an additional $3,600 dollars on top of their already hefty tuition.
Reference: The fee for the a comparable University co-op Program is $4312.
Co-op Your Way looks to make the support and mentoring available at economical prices that redefines the industry cost standards.
