He is an active member of the Stevens <a href="http://www.stevens.edu/co-op/">Cooperative Education (Co-op)</a> program and feels the experience has been invaluable in his career development.<br /> <br /> His involvement with the Co-op began during one of Stevens Interview days presented on campus where he met with the pharmaceutical company Shering-Plough (who was recently purchased by <a class="various3" href="http://www.merck.com/" target="_blank">Merck</a>). Soon after he was contacted regarding a follow up interview and was hired as an integral part of the Shering-Plough team.</p>
<p>Nick describes the many benefits of Co-op involvement as including a substantial amount of real world experience that is impossible to replicate in the classroom. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve had over 15 interviews with professional representatives, and 6 onsite interviews.&rdquo; He goes on to say, &ldquo;you get exposure to a wide variety of job tasks and on-the-job training, resume experience, plus the ability to truly understand how a business is run, how to prioritize work tasks, deadlines, teamwork and business ethics.&rdquo;</p>
