Are You Taking a Co-op Job to Help Pay for College?

Article by Nicole on 21 Nov 2012

As we all know, getting enough financial aid to cover all of your college expenses is not so easy to make a reality. Some students, especially those majoring in scientific and technical subjects, take on part-time co-op jobs with companies that specialize in their chosen field to help pay for college. Cooperative Education is a great way for many students to gain work experience while in college while also earning far more money than they would at a regular part-time job. In some cases, the amount of money they earn is enough to cover the bulk of the cost of their tuition. (By the way, we've written a bit about co-op jobs and their benefits here.)

 

So... is Cooperative Education or a co-op job something you are considering to help pay for college? Or, are you already in a co-op program and what has been your experience? What advice can you offer other undergraduates who might be considering a co-op job? Join the conversation by leaving a comment below.
