I enjoyed being in digital because I got to see what was happening across the bank and the projects that the bank is working on in the digital space. I also liked my co-op because I was given valuable work and I was treated equally as a member of the team. I was able to take responsibility for certain tasks and I got to work on things that were interesting to me.
It was a little slow at first, I did not have a lot of work to do for the first few weeks of the co-op. I would have liked to have more to do in those first few weeks so that I could feel more useful to the team. Other than that, it was a great experience.
I felt that my manager did a great job making me feel welcome and valued on the team. I was involved in the day to day operations of the team and I felt comfortable talking to my manager about how things were going and to ask any questions.
I was lucky to work in a very open and inviting environment. The office space was designed so that I was working close to my team and it was easy to work with them on a daily basis. Because of the layout of my floor there was always people talking so you didn't feel like you had to be silent.
Try to get involved and take on work that interests you. Also, make sure you complete all tasks assigned to you in a timely manner because if you do your team will trust you to take on more work and more valuable tasks. It might start off slow but once you get more work to do, be sure that you complete it to the best of your abilities so that you will continue to receive more work.
