As a student of bachelor degree I realised that I need to find some internship to get practical experiences important for my future life and career. So, I started to find it actively. I run into offer of internship in the Institute of politics and society and I found a position of member of communication team very interesting. I had known the Institute for politics and society before, because I attended some of debates, prepared by the Institute. I passed an enter interview and started my four months internship.
In the Institute I administered an facebook page of the Institute, but except this I also did many various things. I helped with preparation of debates and wrote reports from them. I was also supposed to create a list of potential hosts of our debates. I had chance to participate private events, for instance Business breakfast with minister Stropnický or workshop about Data managing of state, where I meet with many interesting people I could not meet in casual life. During my internship in the Institute I also met with foreign students so I spoke in English.
Why was this internship valuable for me? Why would I recommend it? At first I must say that I have met really lovely girls working in the Institute. They are really friendly and the atmosphere there was very pleasant. But it is not only thing, of course. Abovementioned I had a chance to meet with experts, I found how think- tanks work a little bit, I participated debates about topics which were interested for me. I am sure I am now more self – confidence in general and I hope I am more responsible now. Another positive things I can see is writing of the reports. I can audaciously recommend this internship. It is flexible and you will gain a lot of valuable experience and contacts. I am not regretting to a decision of doing internship here.
