Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres

Marketing Intern

May - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Everyone was very nice, had an array of responsibilities, learned a lot about global issues. Made close friendships with other interns

What I wish was different

Some days I had very little to do, and some days I had a lot at once- it could have been spread out differently

Advice

Attend all the BBL (brown bag lunches) because they are extremely interesting and you learn a lot about global issues

Program Intern

May - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The company culture, the office space, the location, the mission, and the achievements of the organization

What I wish was different

I wish there had been more balance between administrative and programmatic/topic-specific work. I spent a lot of time of data-entry, but they were up front about that from the beginning.
