The most valuable thing about my co-op was the opportunity to learn about the industry while being able to apply skills and knowledge. As a co-op student I worked on a technology support team, providing support for a securities platform. This position provided me Securities/Derivatives knowledge while applying technical problem solving skills.
It took me a while to understand the platform I worked on, I wish I had more than a 4 month co-op term for this position.
Management taught me a lot but also allowed me to be independent and learn on my own while always being there for support.
My team felt like my friends and I was very comfortable asking for help and working with them.
TD is a great company if you are looking to gain industry knowledge and be able to apply that within your everyday work. There is so much to learn and the opportunities are great. The social aspects as a co-op student are great! TD really cares about your experience and this is evident in the opportunities they provide you. You will meet a great co-hort of other co-ops/interns and make friends and connections for life!
