Interpretive Student Aid

October 2018 - July 2019 • Oakley, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed learning how to talk to the public about scientific topics as well as being able to become a certified Interpretive Guide with the National Association for Interpretation.

What I wish was different

I wish we had been allowed to roam the park by ourselves so that we can encourage members of the public to come to the visitor center.

Advice

If you really put a lot of effort into this job it is very rewarding. If you do the minimum it is very boring and unfulfilling.
