Hulu Lunches
Training Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 16, 2014
Pros: great fun
Cons: no pay internship
I didn't work here for long, but it was a great atmosphere. Colleagues were all young professionals happy to support a great cause. Even the management had time to joke around (birthday pranks & joining in on daily team Hulu lunches).

I was an intern so there wasn't much of a hardest part of the job.

The most enjoyable part was being included in such – more... a lighthearted group. – less

Exciting job in an enjoyable happy work place.
Special Events Coordinator Intern (Former Employee), Sarasota, FLJune 23, 2013
Pros: constantly learning about the field of philanthropy.
Cons: i wish it would have lasted longer.
A typical day at work could be driving around delivering event brochures to companies or coordinating aspects such as food, entertainment, location and also the itinerary for an event.

I learned the ins and outs of fundraising and also the planning and execution of hosting an event.

My co-workers were always guiding me while giving me the freedom – more... to figure things out on my own. They threw a bunch of different assignments at me and trusted me with that responsibility which I appreciated.

The hardest part of my job could be the fundraising aspect, asking people for money but it was a cause that was very close to my heart so that made it easier.

The most enjoyable part of my job was working with children with type 1 diabetes and knowing I was making a difference in finding the cure for the disease. – less

I put together a fund raiser to raise money on behalf of my daughter Halley. This was a self financed venture that encompassed me walking and kayaking solo across New Zealand as I raised money for type one diabetes research. I developed the plan of action and mapped out this three month adventure and developed a blog linked to the JDRF fundraising site.
