Looking ahead to the 2018-2019 school year

Students who have signed up to take Co-operative Education next year have met with Mrs. Chateauvert or Mrs. Wrigley to discuss the program.

Students are reminded that if they are enrolled in the first semester course, they should come to class on the first day with the following:

  • A confirmed placement OR an idea of where you hope to work (either a specific company or a specific industry).  Talk to your family and friends in order to determine contacts for potential employers
  • A digital copy of your resume so that you don’t have to start from scratch
