During the course of two summers spent with the Town of Newmarket, I was able to experience and understand the inner workings of the municipality I lived in. As the Parks department is located in the same building as two other Town departments, I was able to meet and interact with a variety of individuals from all different ages, genders and career backgrounds. The Town provided many opportunities for other employment within the Town, and has great benefits if you can attain a full-time position, which very few exist. The job itself is mostly redundant, and the learning curve is not as challenging as I would prefer. Overall, a good experience within a great organization that makes a visible and immediate different in my community.
