Cooperative Education Creates Opportunity for Stevens Undergrads

<p><img src="/ses/oaca/images/main1.jpg" alt="" width="270" align="right" hspace="6" vspace="6" />Cooperative Education is the hands-on experience with state-of-the-art technologies, taking what you learn from our faculty in the classroom and applying it in the workplace. It&rsquo;s working alongside professionals in business or industry.</p>
<p>The academic year has barely begun, but two members of the Class of 2010 have already received &ndash; and accepted &ndash; full-time job offers for after graduation thanks to this program. <strong>Raymond Junkins</strong> and <strong>Carlos Nunez</strong>, both Computer Engineering majors, have secured positions that they are both working part-time concurrently with their senior year.</p>
<p>Ray started with Choopa, a web hosting company, in early September. Though he also received two other offers for full-time employment, the offer from Choopa was the one he eagerly accepted.</p>
<p>Carlos started with Macquarie Bank through co-op and knew right away that he wanted to parlay the experience into a full-time opportunity. He now works one day a week during the school year and will join the Information Technology team full-time in June.</p>
<p>&ldquo;Stevens really helps you find your direction,&rdquo; he says. &ldquo;Without co-op, I wouldn&rsquo;t be in the position I am today. They really emphasize the basics of networking and the process of getting a job. A Stevens education is an invaluable asset to anyone who is looking for a strong career after college.&rdquo;</p>
