Meet Ranjit and learn about his co-op journey at Softchoice

Culture | Posted on October 10, 2019 by Alex Macks

Softchoice’s co-op students are hired for their fresh ideas and wealth of knowledge they bring to our Softchoice teams.

Ranjit Singh wrapped up his third consecutive co-op term with Softchoice in Summer 2019. He now works part-time as a .NET Developer while completing his last semester at Sheridan College in the Software Development and Network Engineering Program.

Here’s an interview with Ranjit about his experience at Softchoice:

Tell us what you do at Softchoice.

I am a .Net Developer currently working on Keystone Ticket Dispatcher project that includes the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) to predict ticket type, priority and department to whom we can assign the new ticket automatically.

As a member of core development team, I have to collaborate among different teams for requirement gathering. I work on a variety of projects that are based on different technology platforms.

Congratulations! You just completed your third and final co-op experience and have now been hired on part-time to the .Net Developer team. Any advice for a student about to experience their first co-op term?

If I had one piece of advice for a new co-op, it would be:

“Be authentic. Authenticity and transparency when working with your team will help you to bring creativity, commitment, and motivation to work.”

In addition to that, expressing your curiosity and desire to learn will make your co-op experience more fruitful and rewarding at Softchoice.

What excites you about coming to work every day? 

What excites me about coming to work every day is knowing that my team and manager have confidence in my abilities.  Along with this, the core Softchoice values are present with me at every phase of the coop. I also enjoy having the opportunity of being an advisor for new co-op students in their day-to-day work and introducing them to the company’s work culture!

At Softchoice, we strive to live by our values every day. In your role, how do you see these values come to life?

The key to my success at Softchoice has this value: “We take care of each other”.  I have experienced such positive team coordination, which ensures team members are pooling their talent, skill, and insight for mutual benefit and success of projects.

Everyone is always prepared and available to help one another. This is a true value that has come to life while working with Softchoice.

Thanks for the interview, Ranjit!
