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

I did my second placement (about 2 months) with McDougall Insurance. I did multiple different tasks and got to pitch in on a couple of larger projects. All of my work was related to marketing in one way or another. I felt as I was contributing every day which was very important for me going into this placement. They gave me a great reference for my next job and i am still in contact with old friends and colleagues.
