US Geological Survey

Hydrological Technician

October 2018 • Columbia, SC

What I liked

I liked the responsibilities I was able to take on at this job. I gained experience calibrating and communicating with electronic equipment both in the office and in the field. As well as experience diagnosing and repairing equipment both in the field and in the office. The field work was also very enjoyable for me because it was on a lot of rivers and in the woods.

What I wish was different

Not much, I really enjoyed this internship. I do wish the USGS had the ability to give me a little more responsibility. But, I know it is not possible for interns to gain enough experience in such a short amount of time.


To try to learn as much as you can while at any internship or at any job. I was able to gain experience in a lot of different aspects of the USGS because I was curious and wanted to learn. I will be able to apply a lot of what Iearned with the USGS to any future internship or job.
