The job market is extremely competitive today, and an undergraduate degree may not be enough to land you your dream job. Employers are looking for exceptional candidates, who, besides a great education, have on-the-job experience; candidates who can hit the ground running without requiring follow-up training.
In collaboration with industry, the Academy of Food Marketing aims to maximize job opportunities for graduating students through our unique five-year Cooperative Education program. The program allows you to alternate periods of classroom study with periods of paid employment in the food and allied industries.
Typical Co-op Work Schedule
Imagine graduating with up to 24 months of paid work experience through three separate work placements – including the summer between your freshman and sophomore years. You will earn three academic credits for these supervised and evaluated Co-op experiences, and you can use the salary you earn to help off-set your studies. If you have any questions, stop by, or contact Mr. Jerry Bradley at 610-660-1601 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
