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

Easter Seal Kingston is the perfect place for a co-op/internship whether you are in college or university. I got to attend multiple community events which was really really awesome! Getting involved in the community was something that I hadn't done a lot of so this co-op pushed me to go outside my boundaries. I also got to work on multiple different projects which grew my skills in many different business aspects.

Sometimes I was asked to work extra hours for events - but Easter Seals is such an amazing organization that I didn't really mind it at all.
