Poster Assignment Requirements
We recently completed the third and final co-op workshop with all new intakes to the Co-op Program. In addition, supplementary sessions hosted by our Co-op Assistant provided students with peer advice on developing LinkedIn accounts and provided students with professional head-shots for their profiles. 

Dr Sue Watts and Jamie Myers facilitated workshops to prepare students for their first co-op assignment - the technical poster. Students should consult the following presentation summaries to ensure their posters adhere to the evaluation criteria before they are submitted to the Co-op Coordinator on August 15th, 2017:

First Work Term?
Are you about to begin your first work term away from home or host your first co-op student for the summer? Our Co-op Assistant, Hayley Gong, shares her wisdom in a recent interview about setting-up for success in any co-op work term. Read full interview. 

In addition, employers are encouraged to refer to the Co-op Employer Partner Guide for more information about what to expect when hosting a co-op student from the Faculty of Forestry at UBC.
 
Guide for Students, by Students
We recently compiled a new "Guide to Everything Co-op" from the guides students created at the end of their work terms as part of the alternative assignment initiative we launched last year. With in-depth suggestions for your resumes and cover letters, information for those planning on working abroad, and peer advice on the importance of workplace safety, the Guide to Everything Co-op is sure to help students and provide employers with more insight into the dedication and commitment of our co-op students.
  
Not Working this Summer?
Volunteering is an excellent way to enhance your resume and develop skills to make you more employable during the next job search. While the following opportunities are not counted for co-op, they can be a great way to make use of your down-time. Consider joining the International Experience Canada (IEC) to work on projects or go on a working holiday in one of 33 partnership countries! Lydia Braam, our Student Engagement Officer, can also help you find volunteer and/or part-time opportunities for the summer:

Work Term Checklist

Student Stories

Emma Cunningham - ES Cropconsult, Delta, BC
I completed my first co-op work term with ES Cropconsult Ltd, an agricultural consulting company specializing in integrated pest management. My job as a first-time scout was to monitor potato and pea crops for insect pests and fungal diseases. I enjoyed my work term far more than I expected. I formed friendships with my fellow scouts that I know will last. Working for ES last summer allowed me to enhance my attention to detail as well as to become faster and more accurate in pest identification. Co-op has allowed me to gain valuable insight into my field of study and even more valuable work experience towards the exact career path that I aim to follow. I am extremely happy with my co-op experience this far and would definitely recommend the co-op program as a great way to gain valuable work experience specifically related to any major.        
 
Alexander Boulay - West Fraser, Slave Lake, AB
The first four months of my time as the Quality Control Supervisor at the West Fraser Mills veneer plant in Slave Lake has allowed me to learn a lot about the wood industry in general as well as the specific challenges facing veneer and plywood manufacturing. I learned a lot about the little details that can’t be conveyed in a lecture. In addition to my role as QC, I also spend time working on different projects ranging from log length studies to up-time tracking and trending. In addition to acquiring new technical skills and knowledge, I was also exposed to being a supervisor for the first time. I was able to improve my people skills, I learned how to work with different personalities of people and how to approach different situations. These kinds of skills can’t be learned by sitting in a lecture hall or reading a textbook. Co-op is a rewarding and educational experience and you will get out of it what you put into it.
 
Victoria Diederichs - University of Alberta, Tree Improvement Lab, Edmonton, AB
I was lucky enough to get a placement in my hometown, which greatly helped me navigate the transition from the academia to research. I primarily assisted with the set-up and organisation of a large-scale greenhouse trial and learned a lot about the practical nature of research. To say I have a newfound respect for researchers is an understatement! I also had a chance to do field work, mainly measuring the height and diameter of a long-term genetic poplar trial near Athabasca. This term provided me with valuable experiences that I will take forwards in my career through co-op and beyond. I’ve learnt a lot about tree and forest genetics, which is an area of special interest of mine. Working in a research lab was invaluable and allowed me to explore a segment of the forest industry that I hadn’t considered before, and I believe that this type of involvement is why co-op is so important.
 
Yuan Gao - APP China, Hainan, China
I was in the department of sustainable development in Hainan Jinhua Forestry Company Ltd., which is one of the biggest forest companies in China. I felt so lucky because our company was preparing to pass the FSC certification and other certifications due to the decline of domestic paper industry when I joined them. I prepared for the FSC certification before I arrived in China, taught workers the importance of using helmet and other safety equipment and how to use GPS tools as well as playing a pivotal role in teaching my coworkers to protect wildlife. I also assisted with various other certification processes. I helped to translate documents for the company from Indonesia. I also translated about 28 journals for the first folk root plantation association in China, which is not easy, but very meaningful. I felt so honored to make contributions (even if small contributions) for Chinese forestry industry as a forester from China.
 

Employer Testimonial

Amanda Johnston, Scientist - UBC Wood Science, Advanced Renewable Materials Group, Vancouver, BC
How has our workplace benefited after taking on a UBC Forestry co-op? Countless ways! Coming from the best Forestry faculty in the world, these student ambassadors consistently live up to their reputation. They brought to us an up-to-date knowledge of the forestry industry, professionalism, and impressive problem-solving skills--not to mention an unparalleled positive energy! This collaboration benefits both sides, as we were able to enrich our co-op students' education through problem-based learning and by giving them a first-hand look at current challenges and opportunities in forestry. If you're uncertain about whether to hire co-op, we encourage you to go out on a limb - you'll knot be disappointed!
 

Co-op in Japan

Exclusive to Co-op 
Okayama University in Japan is offering excellent professional work terms for 3 co-op students to begin in September, 2017.

Goodbye and Thank You!

All good things come to an end...
As the school term ends, we would like to acknowledge the departure of our Work Learn students and thank them for their contributions over the past two terms. Li Choo and Mio Tomisawa have been an integral part of the co-op office and have developed our website, coordinated volunteers for Co-op Night and developed various reports from employer and student final evaluations. Thank you for all that you have done for us. You will be missed!
