The position was flexible with helpful staff and a laid back professional culture. I got to work independently and with a supervisor to learn about economic development. My boss was more than willing to have personal conversations about professional development.
What I wish was different
I would have liked more guidance when I started my internship, and it would have been nice to work with a peer my age on a regular basis.
I recommend asking everyone you work with about their career backgrounds and what their job is today. Often, it’s not always related but it’s how they applied their knowledge to the roles they wanted.
