An Internship Success Story by Marjorie Point Du Jour

In Septemb​er 2006, I began my State service as part of the Governor's Policy Fellows Program. From the hundreds of applications received, only four were selected, and I was very fortunate to be one of those four.

I am originally from out of State, so I knew very little about the workings of Maryland State government when I came in. Being in a fellowship, it was okay.  What struck me most was the willingness of my supervisors and their staff to guide me through all I needed to know and share in-depth experience. Most importantly, by showing that I was dedicated to the work and gaining experience, I was offered a permanent position in January 2009.

I have chosen to remain a proud State of Maryland employee because I like to serve, but the State has also served me well. With the right work and environment, I have gained opportunities for upward mobility. In addition, because we serve such a dynamic state and population, I have never stopped learning. It has truly been a wonderful experience and I look forward to what the future holds.
