How did you find this internship?

A department faculty member referred me to this position. 

What did you do as an intern at this organization?

I performed multiple geographic and GIS analysis on plats for the State Highway Administration in Baltimore. Essentially, I was connecting the puzzle pieces of what SHA owned and didn't own across Maryland's highways.

I recommend learning GIS fundamentals, basic Python programming, and social skills.
