Marketing Intern

June 2018 • San Antonio, TX

What I liked

Good flexibility and great environment for people who want to make a change in the world. Education is the first step and being on the back end of marketing a charter school helped me understand how important public education is.

What I wish was different

I wish there would’ve been more talk about a long term offer upon graduation.

Advice

Just because its a summer internship doesn’t mean they wont keep you year round. Make a good impression and your sure to leave your mark for future employment.

Camp counselor

May - August 2019 • Brownsville, TX

What I liked

I enjoyed working with kids in being able to be a role model and leader. I was able to teach kids many life lessons as well as other skills.

What I wish was different

It would have been great for the camp to be more developed. It was not a bad experience, but it was the first time this camp offered overnight stay.

Advice

When I first took a camp counselor job, I had no idea what I was getting into. I did not know a single person that I was going to be working with. I had only spoke with my boss over the phone prior to going to camp. I decided to take a chance and I ended up having one of the best summers of my life.

Intern to the Executive Assistant

June - August 2018 • Weslaco, TX

What I liked

I liked that the job involved working towards a big goal of college for underprivileged communities, but in very different ways that were all related.

What I wish was different

Like most internships, there should not be an attitude of being a personal assistant. Instead, an intern should be given legitimate projects. This was only sometimes the case.

Advice

It is what you make of the internship, and making sure you complete projects that matter to you by self-advocacy.
