John Capers ‘21
Major: Political Science & German Studies
Through the Colorado College Edge Internship Program, I interned at BallotReady as a Data and Social Media intern. Because of COVID-19, I learned personally how work from home can have immense impacts on productivity and health. I gained confidence in my research capabilities, and developed myself professionally through work and non-work related workshops, webinars, certificate programs. It was most difficult dealing with the sense of detachment to work, motivation, and tech burnout. I left this internship strongly appreciating my ability to create, execute, and manage projects as well as understanding the strengths and weakness of working at a young, tech start-up company, and I leave better understand the organization, the people, and the values needed to fit what I want in my work life.
