Panhia Lee is a Human Services Leadership major with a minor in Business Administration. This is her final semester at UW Oshkosh. She has always had a love for helping people, so found Human Services to be a great fit. From Neenah, Wis., Lee will have her advanced field placement at ADVOCAP Inc. in Oshkosh.
Lee is looking forward to having a more hands-on experience in her advanced internship. She hopes to gain more knowledge and enhance her skills throughout the semester while interning at her placement, working in Appleton and taking her final business class. Follow along, as she shares her advanced internship experience throughout the semester.
My first two weeks at ADVOCAP, Inc in Oshkosh has exceeded my expectations. I get to intern at two different locations — the main office on Harrison Street and the Workforce Development Center on Jackson Street. I am glad that I get to split my time between these two locations because on Harrison I am doing more computer work and at the Center I will get to be more client-based. My supervisors have asked for my input on certain tasks and projects making me feel like I am doing a good job at contributing to helping them. For example, I was able to teach an interview seminar at Career Club. This club helps clients create cover letters, resumes, search for jobs and prepare for interviews.
In the next few days I will get the opportunity to shadow one of my supervisors at the Center during a client appointment. Once I get the feel of how I should conduct the appointments, I will get the chance to book my own throughout the semester. I have been looking over different case notes on clients, so I will be excited when I can write my own, which will be put into the system for client records.
