Curriculum and Instruction Intern

June 2019 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I absolutely loved this internship. I worked with an amazing team, made many great contacts, and learned about so many things that will help me in the future.

What I wish was different

I wish I had asked more questions or put myself out there more. For example, I would have loved to sit in on more content team meetings.

Advice

Don't be afraid to do something out of your comfort zone. As an education major, I never thought I would find myself with a summer desk job. However, it was through this experience that I fell in love with the curriculum and administrative side of education.

Digital Market Intern

May - September 2020 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I really enjoyed my team and the company culture.

What I wish was different

I wish the experience had been in-person. However, that was not possible due to COVID. NHA did a fantastic job adapting and providing a great internship experience despite not working in the office.

Advice

Take advantage of being an intern, asking questions, and shadowing. Everyone is more than willing to help you get the most out of your experience.
