Our history with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. actually goes back to our
first co-op in 2000, but things really took off when Holly Bolan, a former Pitt
co-op and graduate, hired Laura Chessa, and then Tanner Lauderbaugh, in
2005 and 2006 respectively. Since then, 61 Pitt co-ops have been hired
among the three McNeil locations! Our students have consistently
rated the J&J co-op positions among the best, and some have been fortunate
enough to accept full-time positions upon graduation.
In addition, J&J has taken the time to nominate
candidates for the co-op student of the year award. In 2016, Kendra
LaVallee won the American Society of Engineering Education’s National
Co-op of the Year Award due to the outstanding mentorship she received
through her co-op experience. The students are offered the opportunity
for leadership, camaraderie, travel, recognition, and so much more.
