I participated in a digital internship to develop web content for the Veteran Affair's blog. This included research, writing, graphic design, and editing. Very flexible as I could work from anywhere, and the platforms they used for staying in contact were manageable. Learned how to be in constant contact with other interns and supervisors. Culture of the workplace was generally relaxed and friendly. The hardest part of the job was getting the hang of the communication platforms, and the most enjoyable part is by far the ability to work remotely from anywhere.

I hope the work I did will help to enhance Veterans healthcare. The hardest part of the job is a change of mindset of existing employees at VA hospitals.

It's been a pretty good experience for me. I have learned a lot. But there isn't much room for advancement and it's contract work so therefore temporary.

I really enjoyed the coworkers I had on my shift. It was fast paced and there were rarely any slow/dull periods of the day. A small complaint is that the office area was comprised of desk just being shoved together, but we made the most of it.
