So I am interning at the Western European Office for the State of Illinois. They are part of the Department of Commerce and help with FDI and getting European Firms into the state and getting Illinois' firms to expand to Europe.
So far it has been really great. The office has four other staff members; one British woman, one French woman, one Irish woman and an Italian woman.
It is also great because I hope on the tram a block from my house and just ride it down about 20 stops.
