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

I am part of the Quality Assurance team in IT. I originally joined BDO as a co-op last year and returned for the Fall Internship this year. My favorite thing about working here is my team and our IT department. Everyone is extremely helpful and absolutely awesome to work with. With the given conditions, although the entire term was remote work, the experience was smooth and easy because of the support and help I received from my buddy, people leader and the team.
