Policy Intern, Chicago, IL - February 21, 2017
Metropolitan Family Services (MFS) provides outstanding services to the most vulnerable populations in Chicago. My opportunities to work for this organization were excellent supplements to my education and allowed me to develop a greater understanding of the policy field and to what I wanted to dedicate my career. As with many nonprofits, MFS is often expected to do the most with the least and is not a workplace for employees who require micromanagement or supervisors who practice it. There is a significant quality of independence in each project and each department.
