What's a CO-OP?


It's a super-internship, in Layman's terms. Universities and businesses partner up to give students the best of both worlds by getting them out in to their career fields to do real, meaningful work, all while earning college credits.

I had the privilege to complete a CO-OP with SEL in the year of 2020. This transitioned in to a part-time employment until I was finished with my degree, however this opened up several doors for me in the industry by not only giving me career experience, but by also learning networking contacts and real-world expectations.

The entire experience lasted for 8 months in total as full-time employment.
