Students that join our team through SFU’s co-operative education program are paid, receive credit and take on significant projects. This imparts valuable experiential learning and facilitates community and university connections that can help these students excel in graduate programs and in their careers.
But don’t take our word for it. Watch the video above to hear from Sakshi Taneja and Arnav Dada, who completed several co-op work terms with us as members of our core team, and made a big difference in the work we produced together.
Some former co-op students
Rachel joined our team as a Program & Events Assistant during her fourth year at SFU in the Beedie School of Business, with a concentration in human resources and marketing. She brought a passion for student engagement and event planning, and a wide range of experience with SFU student organizations. Read more about Rachel in an interview we did with her in her first weeks.
Cassandra Graves worked as a Design Assistant in spring 2021 and left a lasting legacy, creating a seamless “drag and drop” newsletter template and several highly engaging graphics that featured the speakers behind many major events in a busy season. Read more for an interview we did with Cassandra.
Sakshi helped shape SFU Public Square over her three consecutive work terms with us during a pivotal time of adaptation and change. She played a big role in event coordination, classroom partnerships, social media marketing, writing, video editing and much more.
Arnav made such an impression supporting our communications and engagement efforts during his term as Work-Study program assistant that we hired him as a co-op student for two more terms, helping us transition to online engagement during the pandemic.
