Here are the main takeaways and favourite experiences from this summer’s student co-op team.
As we transitioned to working remotely, we also welcomed a new team to CIRA: our co-op students. We’re proud to offer co-op terms every year that shape careers and set a competitive advantage for a student’s future. This year, for the students, it also provided them a taste of what it’s like to work on a remote team.
Accepting challenges head-on, students learned about internet governance, Domain Name Systems (DNS), registry design, cloud technologies, data analytics, and continuous software integration through the various projects they contributed to over the summer.
Apart from their jobs, students also participated in internal all-staff and team virtual events including, a series of CIRA creative battles competitions, product releases, showcases (sometimes sharing their work with nearly the whole organization!) and industry events.
Here’s what the 2020 summer co-op students had to say about their experience:
