I’d like to introduce you to the NACUFS Food Management Interns blog for 2012!

This blog is a space where interns can share their experiences at their host school – both their official work duties as well as events outside of official duties. This blog then becomes a record of the summer, which can be shared with friends, family, professors, other interns, host coordinators, potential employers, future hosts and future interns!

Interns: This is an official record of your internship. We hope that you’ll share the things that you are doing both at work and outside of work. Pictures are great – so take some and share them with the rest of us! We also hope that you’ll read and comment on the entries from other schools. Our goal is to create a community among interns who are not only learning from their hosts, but also from each other. You’ll need to have permission from your host school to author posts (we don’t want any hosts to be surprised that you are sharing their programs with others!), but even if you choose not to write posts, we hope that you’ll participate by reading and commenting often. Please share your experience honestly and openly, but this is a professional space- this is not an area for you to air any problems you have with the host school. If you feel that your goals for your internship are not being met, it is your responsibility to address those concerns with the internship coordinator, and work to have the best summer ever! Also remember that this is an open forum – anyone wandering around ye olde internetz can read it. For that reason, you’ll want to keep any private information about yourself or your host to yourself. Please tag your entries with your host school name.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this summer... are you?
