Former Communications Intern, National Portrait Gallery at Smithsonian Institution
over 2 years ago
My writing courses proved to be extremely helpful during my internship, as it was writing- and editing-heavy. Knowing how to compose press releases and media advisories was also important for my internship's daily requirements. Overall, having good time management and multi-tasking skills, as well as a creative eye, appreciation for the arts, and a self-motivated attitude helped me the most during my time at the National Portrait Gallery.
