Mind Mapping and Career Exploration

The past week I have been working on the final steps to organizing the Equine Center Ceremony. I also stopped by UVM Career Services, a free service offered to UVM students, by suggestion of our internship advisors. On my first meeting, I took the Myers-Briggs personality test; a test designed to tell you what your preferences are, your best features, and where your flaws may lie. The career advisor and I determined I was type ENFJ: extroversion, intuition, feeling and judging. The test then provides in depth descriptions of each type. The tagline for my 'type'?

Organization and Time Management

I believe the greatest skills I am acquiring from this internship thus far are organization and time management. Working two labor jobs on top of this internship has proven challenging; physically and mentally. Thankfully, I have been able to keep track of my to do lists and use my resources, including my iPhone and Basecamp, a project management software, to organize myself.

Event Planning and Research

During the past two weeks I have given the Equine Center opening ceremony the majority of my attention. This has included meeting with Jeff Wakefield, associate director of University Communications, who brought his experienced insights to the meeting. We discussed the guest list, the potential date and time for the event, our guest speakers, what we would need, etc; everything that needs to be finalized, the actual “planning” of the event.

Beginnings

Experience experience experience. That is what an internship entails; work experience, social experience, life experience. This internship has me enthused at the fact that I will have an experience of learning and creating, putting all my knowledge to the test. The Clean Energy Fund internship started with meeting the internship team, talking about our tasks and responsibilities, what we would like to gain from our experience, and what our advisors wanted from us.
