Unity Foundation of La Porte County

Administrative Assistant Intern

July 2018 - June 2019 • Michigan City, IN

What I liked

The Unity Foundation offered the opportunity to work for a non-for-profit and see the intern aspects of the office environment. I was able to work with the community, enhance my marketing skills by social media networking, and work with other local service organizations. For a college student, this position is perfect. Unity is flexible and adaptable to your class schedule and find tasks that best fit your degree and ideal post-college job to help you gain the experience that will best benefit you. Unity is has a staff of 5 and they are all amazing to work next to. Each day brought a new task and a new lesson. As I progress into my career, I continue to realize how much I learned in my year at Unity and much it helps me day to day.

What I wish was different

Unfortunately, the Unity Foundation is a small foundation, so they tell you upfront that they have no positions to offer after you graduate. The position is only offered to college students, so I had to leave this internship for one that had after college opportunities.


This position is most fit for someone who will be working in an office and will give them the soft skills needed to succeed in that environment.
