Name: Jamie Jackson

Major: Psychology

Graduation: May 2015  

Internship Placement: Volunteers of America  

Internship Location: Metairie, LA  

What were your primary responsibilities at your internship? I worked with staff to develop a new initiative called the Family Economic Security Program and performed initial case assessments.

What were some main projects you had worked on? I developed a community resource guide and a “strengths- based” case assessment plan for the Family Economic Security program. Also, I have assisted in a grant application for the program.

How has your internship experience enhanced your academic and  career plans? My internship confirmed my career choice of social work as right for me, and I plan to apply to graduate programs for social work.

Why should an MSU student apply to this internship program? A MSU student should apply for this internship because they would gain a lot of skills and knowledge in a positive and motivated working environment. Not only would they gain a great experience with the city of New Orleans and its people, but they will also learn more about themselves!
