The MFS Cooperative Workplace Education Program gives participants an internship experience like no other. This year, four rising juniors and seniors completed the four-week summer program, receiving a combination of career training and professional networking experience in their chosen workplaces.

2019 participants included:

Lauren Kam ’21 – Bayada Home Health Care

Andrew Rauscher ’20 – Mount Laurel Animal Hospital

Charlie Tanas ’20 – Friedenthal Financial

Bobby O’Donnell ’20 – Braithwaite Communications

The Co-op Program provides participants with a supportive framework as they enter the business world for the first time. An introductory workshop orients students in areas such as professionalism, interviewing skills, and teamwork dynamics. In addition, an MFS advisor checks in weekly with each student and the workplace supervisor to gauge progress and overall satisfaction.

All four students had unique responsibilities and projects, and all completed their internships with new skills and experiences to carry into the future.
