This first co-op term has been better than I could have ever expected. Outdoor Living Manufacturing has provided me with work experience that is very involved and challenging yet rewarding. Having the freedom to get creative and develop projects such as improving the organization and efficiency of the plant, financial costing, and production management has been an incredible opportunity to grow both professionally and personally.

Co-op has allowed me to explore options that I would not have had an opportunity to explore on my own. I would never have thought to explore the agricultural industry as a potential career option, but co-op has given me the chance to see whether or not this is a career that I wish to pursue. If you’re unsure of what you want to do with your degree, or are unsure about what major you have chosen within forestry, co-op provides you with an excellent opportunity to see which career area or field of study interests you the most.

Co-op has given me the opportunity to gain experience in forestry and put what I learn in the classroom to use in the field. In co-op you are given a lot more opportunities for valuable work and learning experiences in your specific field. Also the co-op employer realizes that you are here to learn and develop your skills, so they want to help you and provide you with the resources to learn as much as you can about the industry.

As a co-op student working in Sales and Marketing here at Tolko I’ve been able to put the knowledge and experience I’ve gained from school and previous co-op terms to use. Managing VMI inventories, creating customer profiles, and running periodic reports are just a few of the many tasks I have been assigned thus far. The opportunity to work on the sales floor of one of the world’s largest lumber companies has provided me with invaluable experience that school alone couldn’t possibly provide.
