Going away for the spring!? Well, I am! Studying abroad is an incredible opportunity college’s offer, and an experience of a lifetime from what I’ve heard (and trust me I’ve heard a lot). When going away there are so many things you have to take care of before you can grab your passport and board the plane. My most recent responsibility is finding a replacement campus ambassador. As I need someone to spread the Intern Queen love in Ithaca while I&m in Rome doing so. I’ve created a 3 step program to decide who will hold down the fort, while I’m discovering Roma!
- Meeting all the candidates.
- Asking them to write a blog, and seeing if it’s InternQueen potential.
- Figuring out logistics, what year are they? Will they be here in the fall?, etc.
I think when meeting the candidates it’s important to see what they know about internqueen.com, how they’ve benefited from the site, and what will make them a great member of the internqueen team. I look forward to this process and I’m so excited to so many people took interest.
