Illinois State Museum

Art Department Intern

June - August 2022 • Springfield, IL

What I liked

I loved the work environment at the Illinois State Museum. Everyone was so friendly, and I felt welcome immediately. There was so much to learn, and everyone from all departments seemed happy to include me in their workday. Even though I was only working in the Art Department, there were so many opportunities for me to interact with others and collaborate on different projects. Truly my most valuable experience in my professional development.

What I wish was different

I truly cannot wish for anything more or less than what I got.
