William Faltyn is a senior at NIU with a major in Sociology and a minor in Nonprofit and NGO Studies.
This summer, William participated in the DCNP-NGOLD Internship Program and was paired with DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association. The following is what William had to say about his internship experience:
Q: What projects are you working on as an intern?
William: I have been transferring data of DAAHA. I am putting it into a cloud based storage rather, then one on a hard drive. This will allow their treasure to have better access to it.
Q: What is the best part of your internship?
William: Working with the data and just seeing general trends from certain members of the organization.
Q: In your opinion, why should students pursue internship opportunities?
William: It allows you to see what you’ve been working towards and creates a better understanding of future careers.
Q: Please share any additional comments you would like to share about your internship experience.
William: Thank you for allowing me to pursue this exciting career opportunity.
