ES Cropconsult, Delta, BC
I completed my first co-op work term with ES Cropconsult Ltd, an agricultural consulting company specializing in integrated pest management. My job as a first-time scout was to monitor potato and pea crops for insect pests and fungal diseases. I enjoyed my work term far more than I expected. I formed friendships with my fellow scouts that I know will last. Working for ES last summer allowed me to enhance my attention to detail as well as to become faster and more accurate in pest identification. Co-op has allowed me to gain valuable insight into my field of study and even more valuable work experience towards the exact career path that I aim to follow. I am extremely happy with my co-op experience this far and would definitely recommend the co-op program as a great way to gain valuable work experience specifically related to any major.
