“For my first coop, I worked for Procter & Gamble Gillette in South Boston as a research lab technician. My role involved physical and instrumental testing of the resins and materials used in the production of Gillette™s razors. I was responsible for running tests to completion and then organizing the data into a formal report. This was then sent to a group of engineers who used the data to make important decisions about possible improvements and new upstream products they were developing. I gained a lot of lab experience which will no doubt help me in the future, especially if I go into materials science. It was also a cool experience because I had the opportunity to work with consumer products which I myself use on a regular basis.”
