BCI's co-op program offered me a world-class work experience early in my career and introduced me to many like-minded peers and colleagues from around the world. My manager trusted me with projects and responsibilities new to the corporation, and these opportunities helped contribute to BCI's broader business objectives while also allowing me to bring my strengths in communication and marketing into the finance world.”
