Despite the fact I was able to further develop my research, fact-checking and copy editing skills, I do feel as though I didn’t get enough out of this internship. There was little-to-no communication with my supervisor throughout, and I was unable to write anything of my own during the six weeks.
The work environment was very stimulating and a fun place to be, but there were often days where I wasn’t given any work, which made those days drag on. Overall I had a good experience, but I wish I was able get more out of it in terms of writing. Working in such an environment with writers which I’ve followed for years though, is an experience I cannot replace and do not regret taking on.
