Metropolitan Planning Council

Communications Intern

May - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I enjoyed working in a non profit and making such genuine relationships with older people. I also enjoyed being in the city and getting the chance to explore.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had the opportunity to get more hands on experiences with accounting or other financial service work.


I would advise people to always be open to new experiences, regardless of past experiences or training. I think that at the intern stage, failure is a good thing, because that is the way to really expand your skillset.
