It was useful experience for me, I met group of professionals engaged in the field of international development, I gained new perspective how to deal with development-related issues and implement field projects in a more efficient way. In general, internship activities were more focused on technical work where I had to produce various materials needed for implementation of the projects, for instance, production of annual report, info-graphics, doing small researches, assisting with project proposal writing and etc.
In my personal assessment, even thought that I gained valuable practical experience while working on assignments, qualification internship was much more useful considering professional contacts that I made. During the internship we agreed and singed partnership agreement for the project to be started in Lithuania, and we agreed to work in the future on joint projects while nurturing and expanding our newly-established partnership.
I believe that going abroad for an internship is a good way to start your professional career. During the internship you have a chance to meet likeminded people, to make friendships that last, to build multicultural experience and to start building your professional network. It leaves you excited and hungry for the new experiences abroad.
Anyone interested in doing his/her internship here, could reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org, I could get you in touch with the General Manager of the organization.
