Internship / co-op Guidance
I have gotten an interview opportunity recently, although it might possibly be a co-op position. However, I'm still confused as to how a co-op is different from an internship in regards to future plans. I tend to think that co-ops are more for people who want to go straight into industry, but frankly I'm leaning a lot more towards graduate school, for which an internship or a research position might be of more use. Am I right in thinking this?
Also, I believe that co-ops generally take up a semester of time, in which I am not a fan of. Is this true?
I also don't have a lot of experience, if any at all, as I'm quite surprised I got a call in the first place. Knowing this is really my first time handling with work-related issues, what should my next steps be? What should I talk about in the interview if I don't have any experience to talk about?
