Tony Royal Bank of Canada: Jackson Square Favourite Memory My favourite memory is basically every time I talk with my colleagues at my placement. One colleague jokes around with me because I'm a so-called "rookie". Another colleague seems like she's my age; therefore, it's easier for the two of us to communicate. For example, there was one time where my trainer was mocking me because of the way I was talking to the client. She said that I should ask "if there's anything else that they would like to do?", rather than "Is that all for today?" She joked around as if I was working in a black market. That made me laugh. Two Reasons to take co-op You can obtain information and experience on a potential career you might be planning to pursue. It gives you valuable experience for the future. Compared to others, you will be more prepared and know what to do in that certain occupation. You can also figure out if you like the career you might be following in the future. It's also an easier way to obtain credits while working and obtaining valuable experience. If you work hard, you might have the potential to get the highest mark in your high school career, and you might be able to obtain a part-time job as well.

Two Reasons to take Co-op: Co-op gives you such a great experience. You get to get out of school for half the day, either the morning or the after noon two periods.

I took coop in a grade 3 class because I thought I wanted to be a child & youth worker but ended up liking the paper work better then working with the children Co-op is also good for getting work experience you need for future employment.. without taking away from your personal lifestyle. I have a child so going to school and having a job would be nearly impossible for me so coop gave me the chance to get work experience without taking time away from my daughter.
