As an avid promoter and participant of university partnerships, Gosco Valves was asked to offer employer insights to U of T students considering a research internship through the NSERC program. NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) is a federal agency which connects university students in sciences and engineering programs with Canadian companies who want to invest in innovation and advanced technology.
Cheryl Duivesteyn, Gosco’s Business Strategist, let students in on the secrets of what engineering employers like Gosco really look for when hiring student researchers. Offering tips about how to connect with companies, build a resume, create a cover letter, and succeed in an interview, the students were interested to learn that attitude, dedication, and enthusiasm were equally as important as skills and abilities.
With its continued growth and drive toward innovation, Gosco Valves has unique research opportunities to offer students with its highly experienced engineering team. A project is currently underway with engineering graduates at McMaster University through NSERC’s Engage scholarship. Gosco Valves looks forward to continuing it’s partnership with NSERC and dedicated research institutions like McMaster and the University of Toronto.
