What did you like most about your position?
I really liked being able to work one-on-one with students who looked up to me as a role model on campus. I also liked working in the office environment the Advising Center provided.
Did anything surprise you about the interviewing process or how you located your position?
No, I felt that I was well prepared for the interview.
Reflecting on your overall experience, what activities /experiences were helpful in providing some direction about your future career path and goals?
Meeting with students was really helpful because I realized that I love working with people who can give feedback and converse, I also really love working with student populations.
Do you have any tips for other students that are considering an internship or seeking full-time employment?
An internship is a lot of work that may, at times, put extra stress on you if you are doing it in conjunction with your classes, but it is such a worthwhile experience that you cannot get inside a classroom. I recommend budgeting a lot of time for both academics and internship so that you do not feel burned out and do not resent or regret taking on an internship; this will ensure that you have the most positive attitude toward your work and you can get the most out of it.
