Internship Spotlight: Cnergi

Current student Maya Land shared the following about being an intern at Cnergi…

How did you find this internship?
I found this internship through a professor at my study abroad program (DIS Abroad Copenhagen).

What did you enjoy most about your internship? 
During my internship, my main role was editing and creating educational content for the Erasmus Plus Project on Active Citizenship. I enjoyed working with European partners and getting to see and better understand the EU system and how projects function within it. Working with international partners also helped me glean insight into operations within various countries and showed how each was shaped by its respective culture and political system.

What did you find challenging?
The beginning of my internship was slightly challenging as I adjusted to working in the city after my friends from the study abroad program had left. I found myself still facing language and cultural barriers in Denmark, and having to start a new chapter. Luckily, with time I found lovely new friends and this, combined with an excitement about work and starting to find my own professional voice, made Copenhagen feel like home.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?
felt lucky to have an incredibly supportive supervisor and knowledgeable colleagues who were always open and exited to chat about their careers. In offering advice to others, I would recommend talking to as many people as possible about their paths and work. I learned a lot from informal conversations that helped me reflect more deeply about my own future.
