The Eric Carle Museum, Amherst, MA
With time my projects and responsibilities did become more important and significant and gave me more responsibility as an intern.
I would rate this site as average but would recommend it to others. Though it is slower paced than I think other public relations positions would be, it gives great insight to the world of PR and marketing on a national, and even global level right out of Amherst.
I think that if more clear directions and a set program were planned for the interns they would have performed better and the museum would certainly have benefited as well.
I would tell students pursuing a field experience placement in the future to be open minded. In the UMASS area in particular, students are required to be a little more creative when looking for internships that suit their skills and benefit their future. I have found that it was more important to have a position that used my skills, than to find ones that were the exact type of position I wanted to see myself working in after graduation.
