City of Flagstaff

Planning Intern

September 2013 • Flagstaff, AZ

What I liked

The environment is productive, the Planning team comes to work with energy and willingness to grind through difficult policy conversations as well as proposition modeling.

What I wish was different

Advice

Be open to new styles of work & jobs. You never know what you could learn if you keep your opportunities shut. I go to school for Mechanical Engineering & this is a Planning position, these are not extremely related, although I am expanding my horizons.
