What have you gained from your internship? 

What key skills do you feel you have developed?

 

I have gained more knowledge of the field of policy analysis and learned more about policy evaluation procedures and steps. Completing various tasks, I managed to increase my software skills. During the internship I also learned how to do qualitative in-depth interviews. Finally, I increased my data-finding and data-analysis skills.

 

What made you happy about your internship?

 

Very positive and motivating atmosphere at the office. Tasks that required high concentration and creative thinking expanded my limits. Data-finding tasks allowed me to learn more about the Lithuanian socio-economic situation and the whole region.

 

Suggestions for future interns

 

Do not hesitate to ask if you do not understand something, because people are ready to help you. Devote some time not only for the completion of tasks, but also for small-talks and other non-formal activities in the office.
