What I liked
Through The Washington Center, I was connected with a position working with the American Archive of Public Broadcasting via the Library of Congress Internship program. Each of these organizations provided their interns with clear, project-oriented goals, focused on our long term career interests, and provided us with resources which I utilized throughout my internship and have the privilege of utilizing today as well. The alumni program offered through The Washington Center is reliable and conducts frequent outreach to provide further career services. As a remote worker, I was concerned with feeling left out or inadequately prepared for my project requirements, but my experience was the opposite. Not only was I connected with many other remote workers, but invited to participate in unique discussions, support groups, and resume-building activities which gave me the confidence to succeed while working independently.
