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

My favorite thing about the internship is the culture it has surrounding the idea to become a better person everyday. Even though the money and all the incentives are GREAT, for me it all boiled down to the experience and the growth I have obtained through doing the program. Southwestern Advantage sells educational materials to families door to door.
