Working at the Department of Natural Resources

April 6, 2010

Last week I started a new internship at the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GDNR)! I will be working in the Sustainability Division of GDNR. I have a hybrid position there as a communications + technical intern.

On the communications side, I will be helping the staff put together publications like newsletters that update companies and politicians about the progress that the Sustainability Division makes. Graphic design has never been my favorite field, but I am going to put my graphic skills to work to make sure these newsletters are interesting and fabulous!

I am (more) excited about the work I will be doing as a technical assistant. As a tech assistant, I will go on site visits with the Division’s engineers and help complete energy and pollution evaluations of companies and factories. One of my career goals is to be a multidisciplinary designer who is fluent in engineering and design and uses both skills to improve the final outcome of a product. I can’t wait to work with some engineers on these site visits. I haven’t gone on any yet, but hopefully I will get the chance to go on one soon!

I have worked for small corporations or LLCs, but never a government organization before… we’ll see how this goes…
