Don't stay too fixated on your notion of a "dream job." As cliché as it sounds, college gives you 4 years to develop and change your mind. I went into college wanting to be a lawyer, and since then I have pivoted to technology strategy. Enjoy every role you are in and have fun with it!

Favorite meal at the View? Pad Thai bar is for sure the best!
Best study spot on campus? I'm hesitant to give this secret away, but floor 3.5 in the library is very peaceful and quiet.

About the Internship
How did you find out about your internship? I discovered this internship through the TommieCareers website.
What was the application process? When applying, I had to submit a resume, cover letter, and portfolio of past work. I was lucky enough to get a phone interview, which led to an in-person interview at their office in City Hall.
Describe your internship in 35 words or less: I am primarily responsible for website edits (content/style), bug fixes, and training new users. I am working closely with departments to provide custom technology solutions that improves business procesess.
Any cool perks? With my interest in politics, my boss is setting up a lunch with the mayor for me. They also allow us to decide our work strategy so we can get into new technology areas and pick up helpful resume skills.
