What I Learned from My Nonprofit Internship

After 16 years of schooling, there is nothing more boring for me than sitting at a desk and taking notes. Something I love about internships is learning through real world experiences, rather than through a book. Internships have allowed me to try on multiple “hats” as I’ve narrowed my career interests and developed my professional skills.

When I first started at GuideStar 11 months ago, I was a different person. The work I’ve done, the people I’ve met, and the opportunities I’ve been given have shaped the way I think about myself and my future career. I wanted to share just a few of the lessons I learned.
