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

I was hired to do marketing, advertising, communications and promotions for Canadian Tire (4 month internship). I did my internship with Canadian Tire during the summer which I think is a good idea for students. Canadian Tire hires a lot of interns throughout the year so they have experience when it comes to handling intern students.
