Career coaches consistently tout the benefits of internships to our students; however, the best advocates for this experience are the students who have had an internship themselves.
English, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy, and Women & Gender Studies majors enrolled in the internship course for their major, also took Humanities 370, a career course taught by the CEC. Here's what a few of those students had to say about their internship experience this fall:
"It helped me become more confident in my overall abilities. Working for a non-profit organization, you're asked to work on a myriad of projects. It can be overwhelming, but I learned how to manage my work and finish it with time to spare. I surpassed my own expectations and it gave me confidence to pursue anything I desire in the future." Veronica Kildare, English 2013.
