Productive and Friendly Public Service Experience and Opportunity
Election Department Office Staff (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 14, 2018
Interning at the City of Boston Elections Department was an excellent summer opportunity for me to engage in the Public Service with a local government. The work requires that you travel door-to-door by foot to list citizens for the city's census, however, the Elections Department provides transportation to each of the neighborhoods. Most residents will cooperate with respect and patience.
Through the internship, I developed better communication skills out of the necessity to interact with numerous people. I also got a deeper understanding of the voting process in the city of Boston. I also learned from my peers that after you work with them for your first summer, you can receive a promotion and be a supervisor the next summer. After your second summer, you can work in the Elections Department's office at city hall.
Good Wage, Internship Experience, Vertical Progression
