My school provides a co-op program which will place students for interviews at companies. I applied to this and did end up getting a job doing technical work.
I understand that they do expect me to learn a lot on the job but I'm not sure if they hired me with the expectation of me having this significant technical knowledge.
As a result, my question is:
- What general expectations do employers have of student co-op/interns in terms of technical knowledge from school?
