I was responsible for...
Essentially my job is to handle whatever my boss needs me to take care of, some days that looks like data and survey entry, some days it is prepping for trainings, and some days it involves administrative duties such as invoicing.
My greatest accomplishment throughout my internship experience would be the fact that I was offered a paid position after graduation. I have worked hard all semester long to get to know the program that I am working for and put my best effort and knowledge into whatever task I was given.
The greatest lesson that I have learned from my experience with Extension and Outreach is sometimes you never know what you are going to get or have to deal with and sometimes the unknown can be a good thing.
Advice for others...
My advice for future students would be to make sure they take the time to find an internship that they feel they can get the most experience that suits them best and that they make sure they feel it is a good fit for them.
