Due to confidentiality reasons, Merci cannot reveal her exact duties, but she has the following to say about her experience, "I think with Cornell being on the block plan I have learned a great deal of time management, which proved to be very useful in the business world. Being on the block plan also allows me to learn a particular thing and work on it for the next month, much like a summer internship. It allowed me to dive straight into my work, get started and produce a finished project in a timely manner."
"Being able to intern at EMILY’s List gave me the chance to do many different things within the company, giving me the opportunity to learn what I do and do not like and what I would like to do with my career."
