Student Museum Musings – Helaina

By Helaina, Social Media Assistant Co-op Student

My experience as a co-op student here at the Oshawa Community Museum has been really good. I have learned so much during my five months here. Co-op is a different type of education, its hands on learning, it’s something that can’t always be provided for you at school. Co-op gives students a great opportunity to go out and work in the real world. I have learned about various different promotional techniques and skills here.

I was challenged with many different projects, but I loved working on all of them. I learned how to use programs like Photoshop, Moviemaker, and many others. All of the staff were so kind and welcoming to me here, I couldn’t have asked for a better placement. Unfortunately my semester is finished and I have to go back to full days at school. All I can say is that I had a great time working at the Museum and I will miss it next semester.

Sincerely, Helaina
