      How Lambton College helped me achieve my goals
      Studying at Lambton was an achievement in itself. Business courses are designed so well to prepare us for the job market. There were quite a few helpful faculty who were teaching us while continuing with their jobs, so they shared vital information about the Economy and how one should be preparing themselves for any given opportunity. Last but not the least, daily assignments and lectures seemed a little too much during my stay at Lambton, but today I can say it all paid off.

      Advice for future Lambton College international students
      I would like to advice that although a lot of you must be wondering why we came to a small town like Sarnia instead of the big cities like Toronto and London. Believe me or not, Lambton Sarnia stands out far ahead than any other college out there. It is one of the most fantastic Colleges with excellent faculty and very cooperative admin staff along with great facilities on Campus.

      Advice for new students to help prepare them for their co-op work term
      It is never too early or too late. I strongly recommend that you start getting things ready as early as possible. English proficiency will be the key element for international students, so keep practicing beforehand. Talking to professors, instructors, coordinators, schoolmates and friends about the job search, and you will get more information and references than you expect. Be confident and brave without letting go of any opportunity while applying for the position.

      Overview of the work you did during your co-op work term

      • Analyzing the product and its specification before performing a vendor research in the procurement process;
      • Contacting with the vendors and being the bridge between the buyer and the vendor;
      • Evaluating the quotation from the different vendors, and finding the best option for the buyer according to their specific requirement of the tender;
      • Providing buyer the best bid proposal and following up the possible requirement or amendment from the buyer before or after the placement of the order.

      Most rewarding aspect from your co-op work term
      The most rewarding part of this internship is forming the knowledge of real business world workplace in Canadian culture, as well as accumulating valuable working experience as the first formal job here which will contribute to opening a door for future employment and career development

      Biggest challenge about your co-op work term
      There are many challenges in this work term. But the most challenging one is adapting myself to the Canadian cultural workplace while performing in a professional manner. I found that I got lost sometimes, but I learned a lot through those experiences

      How Lambton College prepared you for your co-op work term
      Once I started my co-op job in this business organization, I found that everything I learned in college as well as in my previous work experience was precious. Meanwhile, the stage of seeking for a job was essential for a successful co-op work term. The MyCareer Centre in Lambton College did a good job in assisting students with scheduling and preparing their cover letters and resumes. Considering the anxiety most of the international students are experiencing during the co-op job seeking period due to lack of employment resources, more encouragement and emotional support from the advisor would be more appreciated
