My ExperienceI’ve never seen anywhere that cares about its co-ops as much as Hootsuite does. The company has supported my growth from the very beginning, when I was placed on a team whose roles matched perfectly with the interests listed on my resume. Everyone was also paired up with an awesome mentor who helped us get up to speed. I was given challenging, meaningful tasks that defied limits of both my contributions to Hootsuite and my personal growth. I woke up excited for work everyday, and it was enlightening to see a software company through a devops’ perspective.
Hootsuite also has an unprecedented work-life balance among all my experiences. From social Fridays, to the anniversary concert, to an amazingly organized Christmas retreat, there is no shortage of a social life. The interns also became a close group of friends, having lunch together daily, and even planning weekend outings.
