UBC Faculty of Forestry Dean’s Office, Remotely from Vancouver
Over the last half of my work placement, I was given opportunities to work with students, employers and staff by administering Get Hired sessions, group seminars as well as some individual meetings all via Zoom. I think the most valuable aspect of my co-op work term was being able to get my foot in the industry by connecting with the HR managers and professional foresters from various companies. I also got to learn more about each and every company we’ve hosted our Get Hired events with and got a clearer understanding of my best and worst transferable skills. I’m thankful that through Co-op, I was given many opportunities to polish my adaptability skills by gaining work experiences from various companies; I am certain that this will be helpful for when I enter the “real world” as a newly grad.
