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

At my internship I loved learning more about the industry. FuneralTech was somewhere I did not expect to do my placement as I knew nothing on how the Funeral business works but I loved researching more about the industry. At my internship I did a lot of customer research and with the data that I had conducted I organized it for sales so they can better assistant their current clientele and prospects.

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

Research and data entry was not my favourite when I first started. I was hoping to be more on the creative side of advertising and marketing so I was a little off my game. I wished I could of looking into the different sides of marketing and advertising that the company did - such as sales, social media and digital media.

Manager experience

Did your manager(s) provide you with support and coaching to be effective in your role?
All the time
Did you receive clear and actionable feedback from your manager(s) during your work term?
Did you feel comfortable asking your manager(s) questions, when needed?
Feedback to management about the internship/co-op program: 

To improve their internships for other students I think FuneralTech should add all of their directions of marketing into the role. This gives the students a nice taste on what is happening in the industry; rather than just focusing on the market research sides.

Social experience

To what degree did the team make you feel welcome, included and valued?
Like family
How often were there opportunities to participate in social activities with your colleagues?
All the time
Describe the office environment/culture.

Office games (foosball, ping pong, etc) Social activities
