Internship Experiences

Robin Plank

"Being an intern is like wearing a life jacket when you dive -- even if you struggle and choke on some water, you really can't sink to the bottom. Just go in every day and do what is asked to the best of your ability. You will ask tons of questions and stumble around a bit, but the beauty of it is that they don't expect you to be experienced. By the time you have finished you will have repaid these people by accomplishing some work for them, and you will have gained experience that prospective employers want so badly. So dive off!"

Jessica Claycomb

"My internship was one of the most rewarding experiences in my college career. I encourage everyone to consider an internship. It can open your eyes to what you could be doing for the rest of your life. I have learned more than my initial expectations, and I would not change anything from my experience."

"Through this experience, I was able to open my eyes to what environment I want to work in. An internship gives you real life experience that sitting in class does not and provides connections to take with you for years to come."
