    I worked at Smithsonian


    I learned a lot about marketing, had a fantastic mentor, and was able to have an impact on sales revenue! Everyone was friendly and my supervisor was enthusiastic about bringing out my individual skills in addition to what was listed in the job description.


    The office was four stories down into a basement and very cold! Also was more time in front of a computer screen than I would want in a future job - but that's just the nature of the work.
