“I joined the Co-op while I was getting my master’s degree in Information Systems at Northeastern University. The support and encouragement to share my vision was great, and the level of exposure to the highest levels of the organization – I even presented my ideas to the CIO. You get freedom to innovate. Freedom to think, and to propose solutions that will work best for the organization. The best part is, before my co-op ended, I had a full-time offer in hand.”
