FREMONT - In a tight job market, any edge can mean the difference between finding a job and standing in the unemployment line. So Career Services at Terra State Community College is spreading a three-word message - Cooperative Education Program.
The college was awarded a grant that provides co-op scholarships to students and has provided funds to expand and promote its cooperative education program.
In a co-op, a student is temporarily employed in a job that closely aligns with his/her major. All positions must be paid, and a faculty advisor is involved in supervising the experience and developing learning outcomes. Co-ops carry more weight than internships because of the faculty involvement.
