Human Resource Intern

October - December 2017 • Richfield, MN

What I liked

It was a great introduction to a non-profit. The people at Fraser were professional but very friendly and approachable.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a bit more experience on the interview side of human resources, but instead I did a lot job postings and outreach.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions- most companies that offer internships expect that students don't know the inner workings of a company just yet. They want to help you learn!

Developmental Trainee

May - August 2018 • Bloomington, MN

What I liked

My coworkers were wonderful, and I really felt like a member of the community. Helping kids with autism and other disabilities learn social skills often takes the form of playing games, so that was always a blast!

What I wish was different

I wish I’d had more time at Fraser so I could really form relationships with the clients.

Advice

The most rewarding part of the job is getting to spend time with the clients, so definitely focus on that. It’s tough being able to assert yourself as a presence in the therapy groups when you’re only there for three months and you’re the “assistant,” but it also creates a unique perspective that the clients tend to gravitate towards. Find the balance between office tasks (which are always appreciated) and client interaction.
