Amanda Kopil: The City of Reading GIS Intern/DCNR Tree Surveyor



Hello! Hello! This summer is going to be packed with new information and definitely new learning experiences for me but there is no denying looking forward to it! I knew that I wanted to gain more experience in my field in the shape of an internship for the summer right after my last internship in spring 2013. The opportunity for the GIS internship (beginning June 23rd) with The City of Reading was brought to my attention in the beginning of May and I raced to complete the application.

There were multiple things I had to do in order to prepare for the application, however. I needed to fill the written application out and fax it to the appropriate office along with a well-polished, many-timed reviewed resume. But that was the “easiest” part! I also had an interview that I had to prepare for! From an appropriate outfit to copies of my resume and prepared questions and answers I worked hard to make sure the interview went perfect.

All I need to do so far is begin my internship! What makes me most nervous is being able to do and understand everything that my supervisor expects of me. I really hope that I can work to her expectations but yet again that is all about the experience! I am most looking forward to gaining the knowledge from the people that I anticipate being colleagues with in the future. This is an amazing opportunity for me and I am extremely grateful to be part of The City of Reading’s work force! Another learning experience that I am apart of this summer is being a tree surveyor with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources teaming with The City of Reading. I started it on Monday June 9th and it is going great so far! Expect to see pictures of beautiful trees and also my surveying partners!
