The RL101 internship didn’t only equip me with valuable work experience and the opportunity to learn about essential life topics, but the information about Study Edge and its affiliate companies followed me into my professional life. As a GEM intern, I became extremely knowledgeable about GoBoard, Tutor Matching Service, and Study Essentials — three companies related to Study Edge. Although I didn’t expect my knowledge of these companies to come in handy after the internship ended, I was delightfully surprised when they became relevant in my current job. I am a supervisor with UFIT, and one of the spaces we staff and provide service to is UAA/Hawkins. My boss recently reached out to the supervisor team and mentioned that since COVID, UAA had been utilizing GoBoard, and he wanted our team to look into it so we could familiarize our staff with the platform and common troubleshooting procedures. However, thanks to my time as a GEM intern, I was already super familiar with GoBoard and able to take initiative and work with our training team on lesson plans and internal documentation. Even though this was a minor win, I am thankful for the knowledge I gained from this internship (and the brownie points I earned with my boss)!Julia K – former Real Life 101 intern
