Employer Testimonials:

"It has been a pleasure to host a large number of Lambton College students and graduates. These students have proven to be reliable, well-trained and flourished in our business environment. Some students have returned after their second year and moved into supervisory positions. In one case a graduate has returned for five seasons and is the front desk manager. In every case, the quality of the employees are exemplary."

"I was hoping to get a co-op placement at the Banff Springs Hotel and was successful. My instructors taught me some important information that I was able to apply on the job. I learned a lot on my co-op and think it's an ideal way for young people or those new to the industry to gain insight and experience. I've made some connections that I am confident will help me with my future career."

"Overall, I had a great experience doing my co-op at Lambton College. My co-op allowed me to try different aspects of the hospitality and tourism industry so that I was better able to determine which area I wanted to specialize in. The co-op department was helpful and supportive throughout and this opportunity helped me determine my future direction."

"I had the pleasure of travelling to Yukon for my co-op term. I performed all tasks required of a front desk agent including: welcoming tour guests, handling complaints and maintaining inter-departmental communications. I enjoyed my time with Westmark Hotels and hope to work with them again next season."
