As an advertising student, I was initially nervous about how much I could have to offer TAG and how much they could have to offer me, but this nervousness could not have been more misplaced. Interning with TAG gave me a unique opportunity to apply my creative skill set to a professional industry in more ways than I could have expected.
Whether it was writing press releases, developing social media content, or working and documenting important local events, I was able to grow and diversify as a creative professional, all while meeting important professional contacts.
As much as I was able to do with my time at TAG, there are still plenty of things like document layouts and web design that another intern could bring to the table and add to their portfolio. Working with great people and for a great cause makes this a uniquely rewarding internship that you can get nearly anything out of, it's all about what you choose to make out of it, and how you can best be of help.
Working with TAG gave me a lot of experience. I learned how to write press releases, use call to action software, sharpened my Excel skills, staffed TAG events, expanded my professional network, and even learned how to work on the TAG website. No matter your current experience level, I highly recommend applying to be a TAG intern. A TAG internship is what you make of it. It can apply to many different fields such as political science, nonprofit organizations, transportation studies, advertising, event planning, and communications. There are many different ways to help.
