College Co-Op programs have been popular with both students and employers. These programs give the students a chance to show their skills and what they have learned in school. It also gives the employer a chance to hire potential new employees.
Garick also provides a Co-Op program for students at our local College/Universities. We recruit at local schools such as Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Akron, Baldwin Wallace, and John Carroll University. Every year we have between six to ten interns that start the year with us in Customer Relations, Supply Chain, and Information Technology. The program has been successful in teaching the students about work experiences, responsibilities, and new career opportunities.
Recently our Senior Regional Service Manager, John Biliboaca, has been appointed to the Tri-C Experiential Learning Advisory Committee. The committee meets quarterly and he has already attended his first meeting. John has been with Garick over four years and has been leading the Co-Op program for two years. John is a Cuyahoga Community College & Cleveland State University Alumni and understands the importance and opportunity an internship may bring to students. Garick will continue this program as it has been successful to both the company and the students.
