Sioux Empire American Red Cross
Tiffany Eichstadt, Class of 2007
The Sioux Empire American Red Cross internship is an extremely interesting and valuable experience that I would highly recommend. I gained significant knowledge about the inner-workings of a non-profit organization that is well respected throughout the entire nation. Entering the internship, I was unsure which route my future career path would follow. However, my experience at the Sioux Empire American Red Cross helped me realize what my future is in a non-profit organization.
My supervisor allowed me to produce and update databases, brainstorm new and innovative ways to fundraise, and create ads to generate and increase interest in our mission. I made phone calls to enhance community business partnerships and built my interpersonal communication skills. I organized the Dining for Disaster event and expanded my knowledge on marketing strategies through other events such as our HEROES campaign and the Arctic Blast Winter Golf Challenge.
Fast paced, hands on, and inventive with an emphasis on making positive impacts on the lives of disaster victims and volunteers are just a few of the reasons why I recommend the Development Internship through the Augustana College Business Internship program.
