My Internship Experience:
I want to share a little bit of my experience while I am an intern here at Career Services. My name is Chai Lee, a Human Services Major. Being an intern at Career Services, I had a lot of fun and also did a lot of exploration. First of all, I worked on my resume and cover letter of a choice of employers that I want to work with. I participated in the Career Fair; I got to meet many of employers and student from different majors. During the Career Fair, I met with three different employers and gave my resume to them to look at. Next, I attended class presentations with different advisers on topics of interviewing, portfolio, and general ideas of what is Career Services is. Attending class presentations helped develop my professional skills and allowed me to find helpful resources. My next step was the networking part, which I participated in Dining with Professionals and did the Mock Interview. I did Dining with Professionals, where I met employers such as J.J. Keller, Alta Resources, Sherwin Williams and Big Brothers Big Sisters. I had a choice of where I could sit, so I decided to sit at the table of Big Brothers Big Sisters and our host was Ellen Evensen. During the dining, it is more of follow the leader or the host who talked about what to eat and drink with professional people. At the end of the dining, I had some extra time to talk to Ellen and then she offered for me to send in my resume and cover letter for an internship opportunity. I was so happy that I participated in Dining with Professionals and met employers from different companies. I also attended Mock Interviews which was also with Ellen of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Before hand, I did research about the agency and the person who interviewed me, so I had an idea of what the agency’s main role is. The Mock Interview went really well and I liked it because it built my confidence and learned what I should say and not say to the employer. Overall, being at Career Services, help me to get out of my comfort zone and explore the world.
