One of the most asked questions students ask is “”how can I enter a new field without having experience?””. Most graduate students have ambition and a variety of transferrable skills but often worry that they do not have the direct experience that employers are seeking. In addition to co-op experience, we encourage students to find and create opportunities using many other resources available to NU learners.
