Tell us about your internship, co-op, or research opportunity, including your day-to-day responsibilities.

I wrote op-eds on public policy issues and current events, hosted and attended D.C. local seminars, received media training, created social media content, introduced speakers, and developed business strategies.

Describe the process of obtaining your position. When did you hear of the position and submit your application?

I heard of the position in late 2018 through the internet and decided to apply last Spring when I was enrolled in MCS 144. I used resources from that class to prepare my application, in addition to the Career Center’s drop-in resume sessions. 

What have you enjoyed the most about your position or organization? 

As an intern for this organization, I can truly see how the staff wants to help other college students like me in entering the workforce. I don't feel like another intern at all. They truly want to see me put my best foot forward and are willing to assist me in any way to complete that endeavor and reach my career goals. I enjoyed having a mentor in the office to talk with and using my writing skills. The intern program is a phenomenal experience.

How do you believe you have made an impact through your work?

I believe I made an impact on people through my various writing activities, helping them to understand certain policies and current events better.

What advice would you give to another student who is seeking an internship or similar experience? 

Be proactive and be open to a flexible schedule. Every day was so different, I always had to be prepared for anything that came my way!

Please provide a short reflection or quote about what you liked most about your position / earning internship credit / working with the Career Center.

This internship helped me to understand a lot about myself and my career goals. What I learned during my time as an intern was just as important as what I am learning in the classroom. I enjoyed being able to earn academic credit while working over the summer, and the Career Center guaranteed that I was obtaining the most out of my internship by ensuring that I was up to date on various forms and I had appointments to discuss the status of the internship and learned skills that I believe will last a lifetime.
