CARE

Communications Intern

June - September 2020 • Bangkok, Bangkok

What I liked

I loved the autonomy that the position provided; I was able to work in a large and well-established organization with onus and independence on my own projects and was treated like an equal team member

What I wish was different

I wish the internship had been in person; due the pandemic it was moved remote.

Advice

The position definitely required you to branch out from tasks directly given by superiors and instead develop your own project ideas and see them into fruition through your own means and initiative.

Epidemiology Intern

June - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I loved learning about biostatistics and machine-learning. I also loved having complete independence on this project.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had access to more advanced biostatistics methods, which is why I am taking applied biostatistics now.

Advice

Make sure that you indicate to your supervisor if you want more autonomy on a project. When I demonstrated responsibility, I was able to take complete control of my project. My advisor was available when I needed help.

Global Innovation Hub Intern

June - December 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I really got the chance to explore and learn on this internship. It really defied the stereotypical experience of making copies, or getting coffee. The work I did was meaningful and helped me determine the career path I want to go on. I learned the things aI like and don't like in a work environment. Great boss, great people.

What I wish was different

Advice

It is not a lot of pay, look at this as a more experiential learning opportunity.

Internal Communications Intern

August - December 2018 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I loved the flexibility of my schedule and the comfortable work environment that I was provided.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have had more experience working with a variety of departments within CARE during my time there.

Advice

Make sure to keep an open mind when working here. A lot of the projects I was tasked with, I had no experience in but I was able to get feedback on what I could work on in the future in order to add those skills for jobs.
