Lessons from Summer Interns, Take 2

by admin on August 10, 2011 · 2 comments

Last month, several interns shared what it has been like to work for the Department of Labor this summer. Students were open about their initial expectations and ways that their experiences have exceeded the work they originally believed they would be doing. But that was from a national office perspective. What about our interns in the regions? So we reached out to DOL interns outside of Washington, D.C. to learn more about how they are making a difference in the lives of working families.

Read a few of their stories below:

Molly Connors, Labor’s Law and Order

Grace Park, Working in a Team Environment

Yiye Wu, Understanding the Practical Side of Public Affairs

Hi, I am a student at Minnesota State University, Mankato in Minnesota, majoring in Sociology and Corrections. Next year would be my senior year at the University, and before graduating college, one of my goals is to obtain an internship with the Department of Labor, but problem is, I don’t know how. I’m subcribe to the DOL daily reports, and so I received emails on a weekly basis, about new jobs postings, developments, etc that excites more about obtaining a career with the DOL in the coming future. I’m more intereste in learning about the Labor’s Law and Order, and Understanding the Practical Side of Public Affairs, or psoitions available. I would appreciate it very much if I could receive email info from you about these positions, and how to go about applying for internships within these department. Thanks a lot, and I look forward to your response.
