It’s now official – I will be returning to Sybase iAnywhere as a Product Management Co-op for a second semester come January of 2008. I spoke to my manager late on Friday and he was extremely pleased when I accepted the official offer.
I’ve written a few times about the co-op experience at Sybase. It’s the only place that I’ve even considered staying for a second work semester. It’s that enjoyable to work there. When I met the large group of returning co-ops, I was surprised Sybase retained so many. (I was absolutely shocked by the few who were returning for the third time already!) I didn’t think much of it then, but I can see why they’ve decided to come back time and time again.
I’m already excited for what I’ll be working on next semester – I was told it may not necessarily be the same sorts of things I’ve been working on this semester and will depend a great deal on what I’ve been doing in school and what I want to work on. That’s one of the things that makes co-op at Sybase so amazing – the student gets a big say in what they work on during the semester. It just doesn’t get much better than that!
