Being a quick change artist is very important when it comes to internships, jobs, and/or careers. When I started my internship at TCS in New York City I immediately was faced with change. First of all, I had only been to NYC twice before and knew close to no one in the city. Then, when I arrived at my internship I was informed that they had gotten approval for a consultant for the same job I was assigned. This meant half or more of the work I was supposed to be doing was no longer up for grabs. They said I would instead be working with social media, communications, and branding. My major is marketing, so I accepted this and took it head-on in order to improve my skills. This ended up working in my favor since I learned so much more than just marketing a sponsorship and a sporting event!

Throughout my experiences I have learned a lot about the Human Resources field in a Human Services organization. I also came to the conclusion that HR is where I would like to land after graduation!

My internship experience with the Leadership Through Service Program has taught me a great deal about program planning and development. I help students find their passions and then facilitate programs on how to be an agent for social change through our discussions and retreats. This program strives to enrich student leadership skills through service projects and community involvement.

Working at Country Junkie Nation has allowed me to execute the communication and marketing skills that I have leaned in my classes in a real world setting, and has also provided an in-depth look at an entrepreneurial setting. Working closely with the co-founders of the company allows me to bounce ideas off of them and receive immediate feedback. The open communication throughout the company has proven to be the perfect setting for advancing my skills.
