Twelve years of retail sales experience and several graduate-level internships paid off for Michael White when he was named as Weber State University's manager of cooperative education and internships just a year after completing graduate school.
White says he's ready to share the secrets of his success with students in his program."People used to say employers would look favorably upon you if you worked your way through school," White said. "That's not enough any more. You have to do something related to your program, too."
White encourages juniors and seniors to participate in his program and find work in the community to exercise what they have learned.
Some 5,000 cooperative education and internship opportunities are available annually to WSU students.
