The New Year started with an opportunity to learn and gain real-life experience as Indiana INTERNnet’s marketing intern. In December, I had been struggling to find the perfect spring internship until I came across Indiana INTERNnet. Suddenly, there was a plethora of internship opportunities!
I am currently attending my last semester at IUPUI for public relations. I grew up near Bloomington, Indiana in the small town of Spencer. I met my fiancé, Jacob, in high school. He was a football player and I was the equipment manager. Besides football, my true passion in life is animals. I have a Pomeranian, Vada, and a grey short-haired cat, Murphy. They are the best of friends, always chasing each other around the house. After graduation, I hope to work for an animal rescue organization. In the future, I aspire to start my own organization!
Since graduation is right around the corner, it was time to complete an internship to prepare myself for the real world. My struggle led me to apply to the wonderful organization that had relieved my stress. I’ve always had a passion for helping others, and this will give me a chance to help those in search of internships.
This internship offers many opportunities to enhance my social media and writing skills. I am looking forward to learning about the professional workplace and how to conduct myself as a young professional. One of my skills I would like to strengthen is writing blog posts. I have written blogs for classroom assignments, but not for an organization.
Most of all, I am enthusiastic about putting my education into real-life situations.
