Why do you sponsor the UNSW Co-op Program?
It is part of our talent strategy with a focus on pipelining scholars to our Graduate Program.
Please describe a highlight working with a UNSW Co-op scholar
I enjoy it when they give their end of placement presentation and they are so excited about what they have learned during the placement and sharing that with the audience.
In your opinion, what advantage does the UNSW Co-op Program offer its scholars in their career development?
The ability to work multiple placements with different sponsor offers a significant advantage to the scholars. Also Co-op offers the scholars oppotunities to be mentored, and then the scholar often becomes a mentor once they have graduated and have had the opportunity to work full time in the industry for a while.
What advice would you give to high school students considering the Co-op Program and a career in the field you work in?
Research the sponsor company and have a very good understanding why they have selected that particular course of study.
