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

The thing I liked the most was spending time with the team and working with people and helping them out; the early talent team at TD are really good at what they do and provided plenty of opportunities to network and socialize, I had a blast. For work, I was mainly tasked with product lifecycle management. I would help a clients with applications and helped with upholding TD governance and compliance. Was also involved in doing monthly analysis on enterprise inventory using aspects for product data management and analysing data to improve and streamline business processes.
