What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

Allowed to take initiative on the projects, got to actually work with the clients. I worked with the ITSM team so I did development within a third party software. Definitely recommend it to people who are looking to build career with ITSM tools and software. My entire team was really supportive and were always willing to clear the doubts. I am glad I got to work with them since they basically treated me as a full time employee.

What did you like least about your internship/co-op?

Not enough fellow coop students to connect with. Often seemed like I was the only coop student on my floor, and not too many social events to get to know students from other departments.
