"Our firm has hired Langara co-op students since the early 90’s. Many have stayed on with us. We are proud that they are part of our firm’s management. Langara is our first choice because of the practical skills and ‘can do’ attitude that Langara students demonstrate."
“I applied for the Co-op program at Langara because I wanted to gain experience in the work force. This helped me decide on future career opportunities ... I now hire co-op students at Vancity, and give them the opportunity that I was given. “
“From an employer’s prospective, the eagerness of our hardworking co-ops coupled with their solid technical skills and training have made them valuable members of our IT Team.”
“Our final [co-op hiring] decision is based on who will potentially be a strong dynamic leader five to ten years from now.”
“The program has proven to be invaluable to us during our busy period.”
“Our Langara students have allowed us to grow and take on projects with every confidence in their ability to deliver.”
“Students are an important part of RBC’s overall recruitment strategy... we have retained 77% of our co-op students in either a part-time or full-time role.”
