Tell me about yourself.
Hey! My name is Wei Feng He and currently, I am a senior at Wentworth Institute of Technology majoring in Computer Information Systems with a minor in Business Management. I will be working at Satuit Technologies as a Client Success Business Analyst Co-Op this fall. My previous co-op was at Oxfam America as an IT Business Applications intern.
How was the co-op search for you?
It definitely was stressful and not easy. However, if you are on top of your game and is constantly searching and reaching out to potential connections, you’d eventually find one.
What websites/resources did you use for your co-op search?
LinkedIn, Indeed, VentureFizz, Built In Boston, Glassdoor, WITWorks (Wentworth’s Internal Job Board).
What advice would you give based on your co-op search?
Be on top of your game and keep track of all the places that you have applied to with a spreadsheet. Always update spreadsheet when needed whether you just applied, got a call for interview, rejection, etc. If you do get rejected, try to stay in contact with the recruiter and possibly contact them the next time around for either a co-op or full time. Also, don’t freak out too much.
