I really liked the flexibility and freedom this internship provided me. I was able to work remotely, which was great since I was taking two other classes over the summer. I loved that I was able to be creative and network with local businesses in Seattle.
What I wish was different
I wish there had been a little more guidance and instruction. Due to my experience, I was mostly able to stay busy on my own. But, it would have been nice to be given a little more of a to-do list each week.
With this type of internship, it's important to stay self-motivated and organized since you're working on your own. I found that it was really helpful to have an Excel spreadsheet with all of the contact info of each business owner and where I was at in terms of communication and visiting each one.
