I worked at FEMA as an intern (Less than a year)
I loved interning with FEMA Region IX! Everyone at FEMA was so nice and passionate about their jobs. It was a wonderful introduction to government work and I would highly recommend this internship to anyone who wants to learn more about the operations of a federal branch. I was given a lot of responsibility, networking opportunities, and chances to be creative and innovative. The External Affairs team was particularly awesome and they really wanted to ensure that I had a positive internship experience and were extremely receptive to any ideas that I may have had. Senior leadership were also fairly accessible for mentoring and were extremely hardworking and kind hearted people.
There are very few cons! The biggest for me was the commute but that's entirely subjective.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work! The internship program was great and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to join the regional team.
