Hester Goodwin’s Internship Thoughts

Hester Goodwin, who recently graduated from the program with a concentration in public history, wrote an interesting post to the Students and New Archives Professionals blog concerning her experience with internships. I think it provides useful and thoughtful advice for those of you who are trying to balance school, part-time work, and unpaid internships, and here is the link: http://frequentlymessy.wordpress.com/2012/05/24/unpaid-internships-a-necessary-evil/

Just a reminder, if any of you want to contribute your thoughts on this (or any other) topic — or to highlight publications or other recent accomplishments, please feel free to post.
