Hi my name is Cara Carver and I would like to tell you about my experiences as an intern. I am the second official Social Media/PR intern for the Atlanta Humane Society. I am a communication arts major at Reinhardt University and am set to graduate in Spring 2011. There are a lot of things going on in my life right now, although being selected for this internship is one of the most exciting things.
Today was only my second day, but I assure you that I have learned a lot already. Even though the Atlanta Humane Society is a big place, I feel like I already know my way around. My internship position mainly deals with websites, networking, and blogs, but I do not sit still at the computer all day. My first couple of days have been filled with meeting new people and meeting new animals.
The staff at the Atlanta Humane Society is incredible. I have met everyone from volunteers to operations supervisors. It is clear that this is not “work” for them- it is exactly what they love to do. And that is exactly the kind of organization that I am proud to be a part of.
The animals that I have met in my first couple of days also made a tremendous impact on me. All of the dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies have distinct personalities. Being able to spend time with the pets has already made my internship that much easier. They are the real inspiration for me to promote adoptions and events. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me and all of the fur-babies here at AHS!
