The opportunity to gain new experience, beef up my resume, and volunteer for an organization I love to support. The people there are passionate and excited about their work. It's been a great educational opportunity.
What I wish was different
I am doing this internship during the Covid-19 shutdown so everyone is working remotely. In another time, there would have been broader exposure to the workplace environment, greater opportunity for networking, and chances to take part in jobsite volunteer events. C'est la vie.
Summer internships are a great way to learn or hone new skills. Employers want experience before you apply so this is a good way to add skills to your resume.
