What is so good about the internship at City Hall is that it is more than just doing a job. I am promoting a cause that I feel passionate about, and it is giving me the opportunity to make a difference in a field of work that really matters.

I am working as an intern at City Hall helping to promote the Mayor’s Entrepreneur Competition.  It is exactly the kind of thing I am keen to do.  I get to communicate between universities and City Hall, and my job is to bring awareness about the competition to as many students and staff as possible, whether through Students’ Union emails, posters, or speaking at lectures.  The hours of work are designed to be student-friendly, so there is time to balance my studies and my work.  What is so good about the internship at City Hall is that it is more than just doing a job.  I am promoting a cause that I feel passionate about, and it is giving me the opportunity to make a difference in a field of work that really matters.
