My experience

This has been, hands down, the best summer.

One of the best things about this job was not feeling like a co-op because my team handed me real work. The trust into me made me feel that my contribution in everything is significant. All of my teammates invested significant amount of time to train me to how to use our tools and applications. The tasks can be challenging sometimes, but you get to learn so much, that in the end they’re just fun and rewarding. I can undoubtedly say that this place has solidified both my technical and non-technical skills.

I’ve always said that Hootsuite has some of the most intelligent and talented people, and now I can say that I got to work and socialize with them. I am going to miss chatting with these knowledgeable beings and learn about different things. I have gained a lot of valuable skills that are going to help me in an array of different fields in life. So, if you’re passionate about what you do and want to work in a fun as well as nourishing environment, Hootsuite is the place for you.
