My time as an intern at The Heritage Foundation I developed critical research skills and blog writing capability.
Pros: capitol hill experience; able to attend congressional hearings; free food
A typical day at The Heritage Foundation consisted of doing research on health care policy. I was assigned to their Center for Health Policy Studies department. On a weekly basis I was assigned a task of writing blog posts for The Foundry, the Heritage Foundation's blog. The hardest part of the job was analyzing the state budget trends of the state of Ohio for a report that was published.
