Name: Megan Everett
Year + Major: Junior + Media Advertising with a specialization in Public Relations
Part-time Job + Company: WonderLab Science Museum
What do you like about your job? I love that WonderLab is actually teaching me skills that I will use out in the real world. I’m not doing the typical “intern work” or being a coffee runner. I am involved in projects within the museum which is really cool seeing your work and ideas being executed in a larger scheme.
What transferable skills are you gaining? Personal Development, Multi-Tasking, Monitoring (self, others, or situations), Judgement & Decision Making, Organizational skills, Interpersonal skills, Planning, Project Management
Why do you suggest other students get part-time jobs while at school? It’s beyond just looking good on a resume. You really find out if this is what you want to do for the rest of your life. If you wait until after you graduate to experience it, it may be to late.
Post-graduation Plans: I would either like to working in the marketing department for a non-profit or for an athletic team or I would like to work at a large public relations agency.
