Amazing boss, worked with other students, event planning
Susquehanna University Admissions Intern (Former Employee) – Selinsgrove, PA – May 30, 2013
A typical day in the office, I would be setting up overnight visits for prospective students. I would contact professors, coaches, and clubs in which the student expressed interest. I would then set up an itinerary for the prospect and find a current student at the university to host him or her. I was also responsible for assisting with the planning of Accepted Students Day, a huge event for all accepted students. My main role as an admissions intern was to maintain the social media sites for the Admissions Office and Class of 2017 Facebook page. Through my roles as an intern, I learned how to manage my time. Sometimes, I would have to plan three overnight visits for the same date, among other planning for Accepted Students Day. There were three other interns, all working on separate projects. Each intern was as helpful and hardworking as my boss. We had a lot of freedom with the internship, but my boss was always in the office to help when necessary. The hardest part of the internship was making sure things were done on time. There were some last minute cancellations, which was stressful when I had to change an itinerary last minute. The most enjoyable part of the internship was working with students. As a junior and senior in high school, I was scared of what college life was about, so I tried to portray the best experiences to the incoming students interested in the university.
