Thanks to the fantastic resources here at RIT, I was very fortunate to find a wonderful co-op with H.J. Heinz company. During my co-op, I learned far more than I had ever expected to. Not only was I able to begin to collect valuable work experience, but also learned a great deal about my chosen field, packaging science. My co-op experience was also very useful once I returned to the classroom. I am very thankful for all the opportunities that I have been afforded and I look forward to moving forward in my career with the confidence I have gained here.
