I have been searching and contacting people for my internship for the last two months and I have had NO luck!! It's very hard to find an internship that uses both concentrations of child development and design as opposed to business and communication where you can be a cashier and all is good. So I was in contact with the children's art museum in downtown Phoenix, but when it came time for the interview set-up, the lady never got back with me...even though I was in contact with her for three months straight. Frustrating!! The only good thing is that I REALLY don't want to do this internship because it's downtown and those that have seen phx traffic know it's MISERABLE. So I really don't want to go to downtown everyday. Anyway- I went for the weekend to the resort and happened to pick up a magazine that informs you of all that's around in AZ for tourists and lo and behold, I found there was a Arizona Museum for Youth in MESA!! That's VERY close to where we live AND close to campus. So I emailed the lady and called her on Monday and happily got an interview for Thursday the 19th. It's very promising and they seem VERY excited that I'm interested.
Internship, hopeful check.
Application, no problem, soon check.
All before the deadline of July 17th, we'll see. Hopeful check.
