How did your internship help you get to where you are today?
The CSU Internship has opened the doors for me to enter Public Service. I never thought that I would be working for the Department of Public Health after graduation. The internship taught me the skills I needed to have to work in public service as well as how to navigate the difficult task of how to apply and get a state job. It also gave me a chance to meet people and build my professional network.
