    How Lambton College prepared you for your co-op work term
    I was prepared for my work and duties. I studied a postgraduate course in Internet programming and database management and similarly was doing my coop as database programmer, I already had a good understanding of databases and programming.
    We had a subject of Database and I attended Co-op lectures which helped me a lot in gaining knowledge of the subject and other Co-op areas.
    Our professors provided lectures on how to work in a corporate environment, which minimized the difference between theoretical study and practical implementation.
    We had a demo interview, resume making, soft skill lectures which enhanced our personality and made us into a professional from a student.
    Besides the lectures, our instructors taught us extra skills like client talk and business communication.
    In school we discussed Interpersonal skills and duties that we would have to perform during our Co-op.
    I performed as teaching assistant during my studies so I took part in a lot of extra activities, meetings, and seminars which also added value in my overall personality and professionalism.
    So, all this prior preparation really added the value in performing my duties as a Database Developer.On a conclusion, school studies, extra activities, and taking part in seminars and conferences helped me a lot in performing my duties as an Intern.

    Advice for new students to help prepare them for their co-op work term
    Start looking from the beginning. Make lots of professional contacts by joining different groups online or friends. Keep in touch with your professor even after your Co-op. Attend all the lectures of Co-op provided by the school as it helps a lot. Discuss the Co-op requirement and vacancy with classmates and professors. Apply online, hand to hand, and use references. Attend conferences, seminars and meetings as it helps a lot in gaining business communication skills which are required for a Co-op. Make an online portfolio, website, dropbox folder which includes all work and projects to show. Be consistent and hardworking
