Spring Public Policy Interns Share "Notes from the Field" on Rocky Facebook Page

Article Type 

Visit our Facebook page to read about the experiences of our Spring Rocky interns who are currently pursuing internships across the nation.  We've asked public policy interns funded by the Rockefeller Center to provide updates while they are still working.  Our goal is to share tips from our interns, to highlight the organizations that are hosting our interns for learning opportunities outside of the academic classroom, and to shine a spotlight on the students that will become our next generation of leaders.

The first student to be featured this term in our Facebook Notes section is Anna Roberts '14, who is currently an intern in the Office of Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand '88 (D-NY) in Washington, D.C. 

Interns have submitted replies to prompts, including the following questions:

  • What specific projects have you worked on during your internship so far?
  • What has been a challenging experience during your internship? 
  • What was a rewarding experience during your internship? 
  • What have been some practical lessons you’ve learned in the day-to-day life of your internship?
  • How would you describe your employer?

Spring 2012 interns will be highlighted for the next few weeks.  To see the newest entries, you can "like" us on Facebook, or subscribe directly to the Notes section of our Facebook page - which is where we will post these items.
