Laura’s co-op work terms – at Arts Umbrella, the UBC Arts Co-op Program, and Western Economic Diversification – were only a stepping stone in discovering her true passions.

Sheena says “it was my co-op experiences, and the skills I gained in them, combined with my academic background which helped me achieve my dream of working for the United Nations.”

As the 2014 Honourable Mention for Arts Co-op Undergraduate Student of the Year, Mandy was recognized for her work term with the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia in Hong Kong, where her supervisor described her as having “substantially exceeded the normal level for any student intern or entry-level staffer.”

Alex used his co-op work terms to test his strengths and apply his academic studies. He went above and beyond in his Junior Officer role at the Northeast Asia Division of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) and was recognized by his team as an essential member of the division.

Emily will always remember being, “the first co-op student to translate industry profiles for public access on the internet” at Employment and Social Development Canada.
