At College for Social Innovation, we know that our first jobs and internships shaped our futures and cultivated our passion for social sector work. These experiences are the reason we are here today! The beginning of summer marks the start of similar experiences for college students everywhere—experiences that will open doors of opportunity and launch inspiring careers. In this blog series, our staff will tell the stories of their own first internships, sharing advice, memories, and appreciation for their earliest professional experiences
Molly O’Shea is our Associate Manager for Marketing and Communications. Molly graduated from the Community Development department at the University of Vermont, where she developed an interest in nonprofit communication and service-learning. This interest was fostered by the mentorship of professors and internship supervisors who provided encouragement for Molly to pursue a career in communications. Here at CFSI Molly has many roles, oversees numerous projects, and runs all of our social media platforms. We are lucky to have her!
