IDEAS For Us

Grant Writing Intern

May - August 2021 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

I really enjoyed the collaboration aspect at the company. All ideas were heard and explored. This led to better projects being turned in ahead of their due date.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have more colleagues, it was a small company which had some major advantages but it would have been nice to have met even more people.

Advice

A piece of advice I would have about this experience is to always ask questions. This will help you learn more and grow relationships. I used this tactic to demonstrate to my boss that I was extremely committed.

What I wish was different

Take advantages of all events and opportunities to meet partners and new people.
