Did any of you do an internship (paid or unpaid) during undergrad--either in the summer or 1 day per week during the semesters? If so, what type of facility was it at and what were your responsibilities?? Basically, the place I have been working at for summers and vacations, etc during the past 2 years wants me to work there again this summer but this time they want it to be more worthwile to both them and me so they are calling it an "intership." Thing is, it's not a research institution or anything. It's a Social Service Agency. Now, if I was going into Social Work, Sociology, or Clinical Psych even, I think I could spin this in my favor, but I am going into Social Psych--research--namely stigma and mental illness. This is what they want me responsibilities to be: - Prepare the annual report - maintain the website (I designed it using html and put it up in the first place) - design and give out a survey to clients (I don't know what about) - Work with the executive director and the Director of Planning and Development and 2 outside people (I think with PhDs) to prepare the "Greater (City) Symposium on Poverty." (However, I don't think that this is a "real" symposium...the other sponsors are a community college, United Way of (state), a ministry association, and a local foundation.) - anddd I forget what else. I think I want to ask the Director of Planning to teach me some grant writing because that is what she does all day. BUT I don't know if even that would be useful because it's all grants for Social Service agency type stuff--asking for money to buy stuff--not really research. I mean, I am going to do it anyway because I have nothing else to do. But she asked me to find out ways that I could spin this to be useful to me and so I could put it on a resume/CV. Opinions?
