More Than Just an Internship

When asked about my time as an intern at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, I have a difficult time giving an easily summarized response. This is because for the past two months, I have had anything but a ‘simple’ experience as the Partnership’s Marketing and Engagement intern. From the projects and tasks that I have had the opportunity to work on, to the invaluable connections and personal relationships I have made, I could not be more appreciative of this experience.

My Experience as an Intern at the Partnership

My time at the Partnership on the Economic Development team was an amazing experience, to say the least. First of all, this is my first experience working in an office. It’s very different from working retail or at a summer camp, which is what I am used to. The environment was just so welcoming here — everyone is nice and cheery in the mornings (most of the time) and an all-around joy to work with. It was honestly my first job where I got up in the morning and looked forward to coming to with anticipation as to what task they were going to have me work on next, and they always kept me busy.
