I was just wondering if I could get some feedback on maybe some possible things to expect... I have read a lot of threads on others but wanted to get some info on my situation...
The director of long range planning for the county has agreed to meet with me to discuss possible internship or "volunteer" opportunities, since I am no longer a student.
I have a BA in geography with an emphasis in GIS. The only type of related experience I have is course work from school. I have been serving at the country club for the past 8 years which makes up my unrelated work experience, but has taught me a lot in service and people skills. Working to pay for school took up all of my time so I never had a chance to intern while in school.
I am very excited about a career in planning and eager to learn what it takes to be a part of a professional planning department.
Sorry to rant, but I want to give a little background to help with the feedback. So to all professionals who have conducted interviews or students who have interviewed for an internship... Appropriate attire? Questions to expect? Information to research? Questions to ask? Bring anything?
I look forward to reading your feedback and your suggestions, thank you to all.
