Local Hens

Marketing and Communications Specialist

May - July 2019 • Gig Harbor, WA

What I liked

I appreciated the space I was given to learn through hands on and real world experience. Local Hens gave me the opportunity to learn through doing even when I was unfamiliar or needed some trial and error. The office was welcoming, the team was encouraging and had impressive knowledge to learn from. The mission of Local Hens, providing fresh and local foods, was interesting to learn and spread the word about!

What I wish was different

I wish I would have come in more aware that it was okay to make mistakes and ask for help, you are here to learn and grow- no one expects you to know everything already! Once I shifted to a mindset of learning versus trying to prove myself I was able to gain much more from the experience.


Ask questions until you understand what you're being asked for, but don't be afraid to problem solve on your own. By the end of the internship I realized I knew a lot more than I thought, giving me confidence, a skill I see being one of the most useful as I move forward into the workforce.
