I loved getting hands-on experience in public affairs work. I was able to design graphics that were sent to the graphics team to look at and edit, and I had the chance to edit several press releases. I liked that each day was something new and I got to experience every aspect of public affairs.
What I wish was different
I wish I had gotten to work with the other interns more as we were usually working on completely separate projects.
Don't be shy about asking for more work, but only if you have already completed the tasks you were given. Spend enough time on them to make it your best work, and then ask for more.
