Libraries Without Borders

Program Associate Intern

March - June 2019 • Washington, DC

What I liked

It was a very flexible schedule where you could create your own work and projects while helping the team complete their projects. You get to do a little bit of all the projects if you make your interests clear.

What I wish was different

I would have liked a little more structure day to day but overall, you have the opportunity to take on your own projects.

Advice

Talk to people and ask for your personal evaluations halfway through your period there and then at the end.

Advice

Arrive with initiative, proactivity and enthusiasm. But also be ready to take on things that might not fit your areas of interest—it’s a team effort!
