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

By working for such a large company, I had the opportunity to work with other departments and learn how all the teams came together. Everyone in the company was very friendly and always willing to help if I needed. There were also other students that I was able to socialize with during lunches and after work. The work I was doing related directly to the environmental science courses I was taking in school, which made the work that much more interesting to me.

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

Starting a new internship is always intimidating, especially if you're not too sure what your job tasks are. After a while, things became more comfortable and I was able to excel in the work I was assigned.
