Why NHS students have taken Coop...

  • I believe it can help me find the path I would like to take in my future… I need some guidance to figure out where I want to go
  • I am unsure of my career path and this would give me a unique opportunity to test a potential career and find if it right for me, while simultaneously learning about life in the workforce and tools and resources for careers
  • I want to find out what it is like to live in the real world
  • My reasons for participating in coop are gaining experience in the workplace and possibly finding a job placement for after high school
  • I think it’s a good opportunity to explore a career path
  • I want a taste of the real world
  • I am hoping it will help me find a job that I would like to work at
  • When you first came to my grade 10 Careers class and showed our class the course, it really caught my eye… I am looking for a job this summer and I don’t have any experience… this will give me experience and hopefully lead to a job
  • I want to expand my work experience
  • It is an alternative for me to get my credits needed to pass high school… I also focus better when I’m not sitting in one place. I would much rather be moving around doing stuff then being in class.
  • I want to gain more work experience. It is also a great way to test drive a career.
  • I want to be able to practice and share my skills at the placement I will be working in
  • I want to get out of school and prepare myself for the real world
  • I am a very hands on learner and this will help gain knowledge
  • No one hires me because I don’t have work experience and I can’t get work experience because no one hires me
  • I want to explore opportunities in life and I would like to know what is out there for me in the work field
  • I would like to expand my work experience and learn more outside the school environment
  • I love to help people and socialize with them, this would give me an opportunity to do so
  • I would like to expand my culinary knowledge and also get my foot in the door in restaurants
  • I want to further explore opportunities for a career in business… I am a hands on learner and I want to enhance my learning and obtain first hand experience in the world of business
