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

I went to Toronto for my first placement so that I could expand my network and get a taste of what it would be like living and working in the city. I loved the work culture and how Kognitive worked and ran their business. They are all very smart and influencial people to learn from. I wasn't given too much responsibility but I did get to work on some really cool marketing campaigns.
