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

The best part about my coop placement was the multi-layered support system I had. I had a direct mentor who was able to help me with day to day tasks and provide me with guidance during my projects. Additionally, I was assigned a coop mentor who checked in with me once a month to make sure that I was enjoying my placement and to ask if I had any interest in trying areas I was not being exposed to.

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

A downside to this coop placement was that it was in a rural area and I had to move for the placement. But, I was compensated very well for this move.
