The Intern Experience
Shawna Hite - Communications Intern - Summer 2011
Psychology and Communications Major at Lake Forest College in Illinois
"The internship allowed me to gain experience in the workplace while serving a cause I whole-heartedly support. Few internships allow you to feel like you are both benefitting your own personal goals and still making a difference; interning at ORTL though, allowed me to do just this."
Kathryn Connors - Grassroots Intern - Spring 2010
Political Science Major at The Ohio State University
"The Grassroots internship was a fantastic opportunity to wet my palette for a nonprofit agency and the work place. It allowed me to take a step back from my one track mind and path to look at the big picture. In life we are given opportunity. We can choose to take these opportunities and turn them into something lucrative or we can pass them up."
Zena Aziz - Special Events Intern - Autumn 2011
Political Science and French Major at The Ohio State University
Glenn Winters - Video Communications Intern - Summer 2012
English Major at The Ohio State University
"While interning at ORTL, I learned what it meant to be a part of a professional workplace dedicated to a mission. Being an intern afforded me the opportunity to see, from the inside, what it takes to be a part of a small, cohesive and successful operation. Also, I was able to create videos like this Intern Experience Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLPbaa9e_O8."
