My favourite thing about my co-op was being trusted to complete projects on my own which allowed me to see projects from start to finish. It's great feeling accomplished but even better when you see the work you completed actually assist others and be of use!
Though my manager is located in Lux, while I was located in Toronto, it made no negative impact on my experience. I am beyond thankful for how encouraging my manager was throughout the entire term. Whether it be answering any questions I have or providing me with a variety of work to build my knowledge, my manager was always there to support me even though he wasn't even in the same time zone!
In addition to my reporting manager, the team was kind enough to assign me a local manager to ensure I had someone to turn to if I needed any assistance in Toronto. I also have an amazing mentor/team member located in Toronto with me, who without, I would've definitely not been as successful in my work.
