Co-op Grad Survey Results

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 May and November 2020 co-op grads had to say:

  • 90% of recent co-op grad respondents were employed in their field of study
  • More than 90% of recent co-op grads who are employed secured employment in their field of study within six months of graduation
  • 100% of co-op grads who are employed 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
  • 100% of co-op grads said that co-op was effective in helping secure full-time employment after graduation
  • 100% of co-op grads felt prepared for the workforce after completing co-op
  • 100% of co-op grads said that they were satisfied with the Mount’s co-op program.

Grad Testimonials

Blue Line

“The co-op program truly set me up for success heading into the professional world post-graduation. This hands-on experience has allowed me to feel confident in my abilities to construct a cover letter, resume, and prepare for a job interview successfully.” Paighton Arseneault, BPR, 2020

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities I got because of the co-op program at the Mount. It allowed me to work in my field for the entirety of the second half of my degree (due to being hired on part-time following each of my three placements) and I credit it with being able to secure not one but two job offers before even graduating.” Morgan Myshrall, BPR, 2019

“I learned more on the job in my first co-op than I did my entire degree. Overall it was amazing, practical and life changing. The staff are amazing, they knew me and knew what I was looking for. I would have been petrified to jump into the workforce without the priceless experience I gained from the program.” Della d’Entremont, BBA Class of 2017
