I believe that my studies played a role in my ability to complete this internship. While my “Construction Coordinator” label does not directly apply to any of my majors (Anthropology, Sociology, Communications, and Economics), I feel like I was able to tap into each subject to accomplish my daily tasks. I often referenced old course material to problem solve in a timely manner, as well as to develop my interview questions. Regardless of what you’re studying in school, you can and will find meaning and enjoyment in this internship! The staff will help you create your own experience that is personal and individualized.
This has been my first official and, somewhat, long-term internship which provided me with immense experience and a general knowledge of my workplace preferences and necessities. I learned a general comprehension of healthy work environments and being a part of a professional team, which is a knowledge that anyone (high schooler, undergraduate student, graduate, or AmeriCorps) will take value from.
I really appreciate you taking the time to read this blog, and I hope it gave you whatever information and confirmation you needed to apply for an internship or Americorps position. You’ll make an impact on the Greater Garland community, and I promise that they will return the favor for you, too.
