Human Resources and Library Services Intern

My internship with the City of Santa Clarita has afforded me a multitude of professional and personal development opportunities; the guidance and feedback I receive from my supervisor and other members of my department has been invaluable to my learning and development. My projects have specifically grown my experience in program development, benchmark research, and project management, and the ability to work with and learn from other departments in addition to Human Resources and the Libraries has grown my knowledge of City functions exponentially. I have felt immensely supported in my career development and am so appreciative of all the resources the City has provided me with.

Before becoming an intern, I had worked part-time for the City in Recreation, and I was nervous as to what it would be like taking my professional journey to the next level, but let me tell you, all those nerves were gone the moment I walked in the door. When you step into the role of an intern for the City you learn right away that you are backed by the most supportive and welcoming mentors that will help you gain professional experience including formatting spreadsheets, learning organizational awareness, and how to work on a team. It is a great feeling knowing that all my hard work is going towards meaningful projects that will leave a lasting positive impact on the community.
