My name is Melissa – I’m a senior at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. I created my own major for event planning and production, while also completing minors in business and sociology. I currently intern at Deer Park Manor in Bloomington, IN as an events intern and contribute articles for Viktorix, an event planning website. I also blog about my internship over at DPMintern.wordpress.com while managing their Twitter account (@_DeerParkManor). I value internships for the experience they provide – both good and bad – and for the networking opportunities that comes from an internship position.
