“My supervisor was amazing and helped me to not only comprehend the depth of what EM does but afforded me the opportunity to explore the roles of other departments and associated agencies. I couldn't have asked to get any more out of my position than I did. They were also extremely flexible with my schedule and offered a variety of training/certification courses intended for actual employees.”
