Intern Spotlight – Danielle Hoske

Danielle Hoske is a Senior at NIU with a major in Community Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) and a minor in Communications.

This semester, Danielle participated in the Internship Program and was paired with CASA. The following is what Danielle has to say about her internship experience:

Q: What projects are you working on as an intern?

Danielle: I am the Social Media and Marketing Intern at CASA. I have been responsible for the following projects: creating a brand guide, managing all social media accounts, collaborating on fundraising and appreciation events, developing an annual social media content calendar, and building a volunteer outreach plan.

Q: What is the best part of your internship?

Danielle: Interning at CASA has provided me with a variety of really cool opportunities! Attending DCNP seminars and being fully immersed in a nonprofit setting have been the most beneficial aspects of participating in this internship.

Q: In your opinion, why should students pursue internship opportunities?

Danielle: Being an intern provides real world experience. I have learned so much throughout my coursework and, because of the Internship Program, I was able to apply my knowledge in a practical setting. An internship provides hands-on experience, which in my opinion, is the best way to learn and master one’s skills.

Q: Please include any additional comments you would like to share about your internship experience. 

Danielle: SHOUT OUT to the Roberts Family Foundation! Thank you for funding and supporting such a beneficial opportunity for NIU students and nonprofits!
