“Working at FDM as a Winter Intern for my first co-op work term was an amazing experience! This rotational program is a great way for you to get a taste of human resources, recruitment, sales, administration and marketing. There is always the opportunity to be involved with other teams in the office and work cross functionally. Everyone here is extremely friendly and willing to teach you and give you more responsibility. I have grown so much since working at FDM and it has definitely opened doors for me.”
