Internship Experience: State Department’s IIP

(FIU News) – Isaiah Barrett, a communications major at Florida International University, recently completed an internship with the U.S. State Department.

This summer Barrett worked in the International Information Programs (IIP) Office of Design where he managed and provided guidance in multimedia platforms such as WordPress to help redevelop sites in the IIP Department. He also assisted in designing, planning and developing a new user-friendly interface for IIP’s “American Spaces” site.

According to Barrett, “The coolest thing that happened during the internship was learning how this department develops and operates its websites, and how it differs from the private and academic sectors.”
