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

I like working with the people at Hydro One, they have a lot of experience. If you get a full-time position you can sign up for "rotations" which allows you to work with other departments. This means you will never be bored and can also try out different things. The company is also unionized. I was mainly involved with building rehabilitation projects such as roofing, and HVAC replacements. I also worked on ERPs, Emergency Response Plans, and BCSs, Business Case Summary, when requesting for funding.
