5 Reasons I Love My Internship

I found something I'm truly passionate about.

5 Reasons I Love My Internship

This summer I dipped my toes into the water and experienced a taste of what the adult life is truly like. I accepted an internship that pertains to the field I am studying at my university. A million thoughts crossed my mind when I started, as well as a million fears. What if I don't like it? What if this isn't for me? What if I can't do it?

I am now 6 weeks into my internship ( halfway done) and I can honestly say I have never been happier. So, here are 5 reasons why I LOVE my internship.

1. I'm getting hands-on experience

College typically consists of learning inside a classroom from one professor. At my internship, I am able to engage with fellow reporters, photographers, and citizens. I'm actually participating as opposed to sitting back and listening to someone else.

2. I'm understanding what the job actually entails

Courtney Gutkowski

While you'e in college you tend to only listen to lectures and read from textbooks. At my internship, I'm doing things I would do if I were to get hired upon graduation, which is incredibly beneficial.

3. I'm making connections

Courtney Gutkowski

Working at a news station has allowed me to meet so many people in the business, who can potentially help me advance further in my career in the future. It's important to form relationships with people who have experienced similar things.

4. I've gained more confidence in myself

Courtney Gutkowski

Prior to my internship I was always skeptical and didn't have much confidence in myself. Now, I'm much more comfortable with who I am, and I've learned to face my fears. You won't get very far in life if you don't take risks and go after what you want.

5. I've found a career that will make me happy

Courtney Gutkowski

Every day when I wake up and go to my internship I'm excited for what the day has in store. People always say to choose a job that doesn't feel like work, and I think I'm lucky enough to have found that.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
