Co-op Grad Survey

Since 2010, the Co-op Office has conducted a co-op grad survey to learn about grad success in the workplace and how co-op contributed to their current level of success. Business administration, public relations, and tourism & hospitality management co-op students are surveyed one year following graduation.

Here's what our grads had to say:

  • More than 80% of co-op grads secured employment in their field of study within six months of graduation
  • 91% of co-op grads secured employment in their field of study within one year of graduation
  • Co-op grads are employed in all employment sectors - government, private, and not-for-profit
  • 91% of co-op grads said that co-op was effective in helping secure full-time employment after graduation
  • 94% of co-op grads felt prepared for the workforce after completing co-op
  • 91% of co-op grads said that co-op was effective in helping secure full-time employment after graduation
  • 98% of co-op grads said that they were satisfied with the Mount's co-op program.

"My co-op experiences were rewarding and provided an insight into communications in fields in which I had little experience. The advice I received from my mentors was valuable and helped me to build on my strengths and improve my weaknesses. The co-op experience rounded out my resume. I was able to find a job in communications within a month of graduation." ~Teresa Workman, BPR Class of 2016

"Completing the co-op program at the Mount played a major role in securing full time employment in the field of public relations. It is all about relationships, building them and maintaining them and the co-op program exposes you to so many people so early in your degree." ~Sarah Williams, BPR Class of 2016

"Co-op gave me the opportunity to apply for jobs before the rush of fourth year university. It was an amazing experience that has already led to many opportunities I wouldn't normally have this early in my career. I am working in the US long-term as a Forensic Consultant." ~Chantal O'Brien, BBA Class of 2014
