Volunteer, Wilmette, IL - February 12, 2013
I worked in the marketing department (web-site) and the development department (foundation research, telephone work). I discovered how their web-site was put together, and what errors their staff might make in working with it; I learned how to make cold calls and deal with donor files. The most enjoyable part of the job was interaction with MIC staff. The hardest part of the job was cold-calling. After three months, the staff concluded that any future work would involve a confidentiality that they could not extend to me as a volunteer.
