Okay, you want to know the funniest thing of the week for me?
It has to be this: I’m actively trying to get two friends co-op jobs, and if I can swing it, I’ll try to land the third one a job as well.
It’s all a part of my active campaign to get all of my engineering major friends to co-op if they haven’t done so already. I was at Commencement on Sunday when I realized that all my friends who had work experience had jobs and that those who didn’t have experience didn’t have jobs. I consider co-oping not only good for deciding whether or not you want to spend the rest of your life as an engineer–me, I don’t think I do–and a good financial buttress for you during those lean college years, but it’s a way to nearly recession-proof your resume.
So what if it takes you an extra year to get through college. Come on, college life beats the ever-loving hell out of working for a living. Why do you think I’m staying in school, eh?
