Intern at City of Coquitlam in Coquitlam, BC
This summer, I’ve been working for the City of Coquitlam as a labourer in the roads department. Our big project this work term has been cleaning the medians on all the roads in the city. Some other tasks I have been assigned to include concrete spill removal, tree pruning, and walkway maintenance, which consists of cutting grass/weeds as well as trimming overgrown hedges/branches. Co op has given me the experience to work for municipal government positions such as this which have allowed me to see how municipal government/public works sectors function in our cities. It has also afforded me many networking opportunities which will be beneficial in pursuing a future career in the government.
