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

The people i worked with were amazing and always made sure everyone felt apart of the work family. It was based in a very small town which meant everybody knew everybody and enjoyed each other company.

I was mainly taking booking and posting on their social media platforms. I created a marketing plan and presented it to members of the board for approval

I was somewhat under utilized,
