Matt's Co-Op Experience: Reflecting on 15 Months of Meaningful Work

On his last day, Matt Askett, a co-op student for Alberici's Canadian division, reflected on the 15 months he spent with Alberici:


Today is the last day of my co-op term with Alberici, and I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for these past 15 months.


I’ve heard many horror stories from fellow students who spent their co-op terms getting people coffee, and occasionally getting the work that their boss just didn’t want to do. If I’m being honest, I did get people coffee, and I’m sure I did work that my bosses’ didn’t want to do, but that was luckily just a small part of my job.


One week into my internship I was driving a boat full of carpenters and labourers across Lake Ontario having never driven a boat before. I spent that summer helping organize the logistics of pouring thousands of cubic meters of concrete underground on an Island. Later, I was given the opportunity to tour projects in and around St. Louis, and lastly I was sent to Pearson International Airport where I learned a great deal about conveyor systems, and working in a high security area. Even half of that would have been a dream internship for many.


I’ve learned so much over the past year and a half. A ton information has been thrown my way, and at times it’s been stressful, but I never felt overwhelmed because I always felt like I could ask any question. That’s what has stood out to me the most during my time with Alberici. If I had an issue with payroll, financial, safety, or quality documentation, someone was always willing to help. If I didn’t understand a process on site, someone would always be able to explain it to me.


I had high expectations going into this internship, and Alberici easily exceeded them.
