Former Activity Leader and Administrative Assistant Intern at EF Education First
about 2 years ago
I like that you have the independence and flexibility as an Administrative Assitant and Activity Intern to integrate your own personality into your day to day job and passions. I was able to come up with informational quizzes on weekend trips to better educatestudents about the customs, values, and culture at cities we visited or truly utilize my outgoing personality to make all students feel welcome and included in the whole group by forming close relationships with many of them. As activity interns, we were also allowed to come up with our own activities and outings if we saw that some of the old activities did not attract as many students to sign up. I was also grateful to have learned a lot of essential skills as an administrative assistant intern such as managing personal finances, booking trips in time, responding promptly to student concerns etc. I didn't dislike much about my position, but one flaw it had was that I was expected to do a lot more than was described in the job listing that I did not expect, so I was required to almost work the full day all week. It also wasn't clear how we our job assignments might change over time.
