As AACTE's market research coordinator intern, I worked on monetizing our marketing efforts, projecting marketing needs for future events, and researching similar organizations to see where we could improve.

When I originally accepted the position I was a little skeptical because my passion wasn't really education. However, soon after I started I realized that I would be able to take some of my skills from math and data analysis and apply them right away.

My favorite part about AACTE was by far the people. They made us interns feel at home right away and were more than happy to help us with anything we needed or had questions about.

The skills I learned from working in a professional environment at AACTE have definitely stuck with me and have allowed me to get other internships. I believe the prestige of working at a top nonprofit has stuck out on my resume and has separated me from other applicants as well.
