How did you learn about this opportunity?

I found the internship opportunity on a Penn State Job Board.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

Interning at the Center, I was responsible for a lot of advertising, event planning, and writing blogs/newsletters. The Center for Global Studies hosts a lot of speaker events with very well known figures in international relations, and it was a great experience being able to speak to many of them personally.

Academically, I was able to learn a lot about international relations and globalization through the many speaker events.

How did this experience impact you academically?

Academically, I was able to learn a lot about international relations and globalization through the many speaker events. I was also able to learn a lot about the academic programs that the Center offers like the Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

After graduation, I plan on joining the Peace Corps and then working as a lobbyist to push policy related to international relations and foreign aid that I think is the best to aid other nations.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

I would strongly recommend this experience, especially to people interested in public relations and marketing.
