My last week as an intern at JFCS was certainly bittersweet. While I’m happy to spend the last month of my summer break relaxing before I head back to school, leaving JFCS feels a little surreal. I feel like I just started my internship, but nine weeks have come and gone faster than I could have imagined.
I spent my last week cranking out as many articles as I could possibly do. I was given three new blog pieces and I continued to create more Staff Spotlights as they came in. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: I am very grateful that I was able to write so much in this internship. I’m an English major because I love reading and writing; getting to do what I love and building upon my experiences. I’m very excited that I now have a whole portfolio of professional writing under my belt.
During my last week, I experienced a lot of praise from both of my supervisors, Lisa and Beverly. This was very humbling, and it made all my hard work from the past nine weeks worth the effort. On Wednesday, I went out to the lunch with the Marketing and Development team as a last hoorah! They thanked me for all my hard work and gave me some gifts, which were incredibly thoughtful.
Overall, I’m grateful that I was able to have such a rewarding experience and met so many great people at JFCS. I learned a lot about working in an office, interacting with adults, and getting out of my comfort zone. I want to thank Lisa for teaching me about marketing and how various social media platforms work together to develop an organization; it was very fascinating to understand how each individual post or event has the potential to increase clientele, donations, etc. I also want to thank JFCS and Beverly for hiring me so I was able to have such an unforgettable experience this summer. I definitely recommend this program to anyone looking for a summer job or internship. Go to the JFCS website in March when notice is posted for these internships.
