“After my internship at the Minnesota Zoo, I have been able to clarify my career goals. I have absolutely loved my time here, and it has made me want to work in a similar career after graduation. Through getting to know many of my coworkers in education, but also getting to know employees in other parts of the Zoo, the networking that the Zoo offers me will definitively help in any future job search.”
