  • What I learned on co-op that I couldn’t learn in class

    BostInno - 12/18/2015

    I first set foot on Northeastern University’s campus when I was a junior in high school, as I was visiting some interesting colleges in the Boston area. My friends and I tagged along a campus tour group and, after some walking around, the tour guide told us about the cooperative education (co-op) program. Northeastern’s famous co-op program allows its students to gain up to 18 months of professional work experience in a 4- or 5-year degree program. In my own 12 months of co-op experience, I was lucky enough to hold marketing positions for two amazing startup companies: Hotcourses and Seismic. Along the way, I’ve learned a few things I couldn’t possibly have learned just sitting in a classroom.
