Economics Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Washington, DC
“I loved the energy of DC--our office had a ninth-floor view of the Capitol, and it really connected the disparate work we all did to advocate for the transportation industry. In my position, I researched transportation finance, need, and safety. Most of the time, this made its way directly into Congressional testimony or reports for our members. Alongside this work, I was given freedom to revise and better recurring work that ARTBA does (weekly reports, data collection practices, etc). It was great to meet colleagues outside of the office and experience what Southeast had to offer. Being paid to work 30 hrs/wk was nice because it meant 3.5 day weekends!”

Economics Intern

January 2017 - August 2017 Washington, DC
“Wonderful people to work with! Genuinely interested in including me on projects and in company events. Trusted me to do good, interesting work (e.g. STATA, writing reports, analyzing data, writing for their website) instead of just busy-work or intern tasks. The few more menial things I did do were things that the entire company was working on (e.g. during an office move, helping with hosting conferences). They were also incredibly flexible about hours and extending the internship into the summer.”
