Gazaro is very pleased that our Carlton co-op students learned a lot from their time with us, as they have played a significant role in the growth of our company.
Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Alexander Rink, CEO of the start-up company Gazaro, was named one of Carleton University’s Co-op Employers of the Year and was presented with an award at a ceremony.
“It is an incredible honour to have won this award,” Rink said. “We are very pleased that our co-op students learned a lot from their time with us, as they have played a very significant role in the growth of our company. We are strong believers in the Carleton co-op program and the mutual benefits for both parties.”
Carleton University Business co-op students Tania Steyn and Sam Storry shared why they nominated Rink.
Steyn credits Rink for two things: being treated like any other employee and the value of ethics. “Ethics may not be something that many co-op students consider when choosing an employer, however it is something that I have come to value greatly. I am proud to be a part of a team that holds their employees to high ethical standards and fosters a culture that keeps ethics in mind, while remaining innovative, fast-paced, driven and energetic.”
Storry relayed that his co-op placement at Gazaro allowed him to see a project through from beginning to end. “It was invaluable for me to understand every aspect of a business and how it all fits together. I feel the hands-on and real-world experience I received vastly improved the value of my degree.”
