What Past Interns Are Saying:
"Every day is a new challenge, with a new answer, with new guidance, and new lessons and skills learned. This internship will be the best decision you can make for your career path no matter what career that may be."
"I wish I could gain that much knowledge and professional development from every internship and undergraduate job I have completed. I have gained presentation, advising, interview, and communication skills that have already begun to prove themselves useful for future professional endeavors."
"[I]t has helped me become more confident in my work and speak my mind when I come up with ideas. It also helped me with public speaking and handling a large group of people."
"As a direct consequence of my internship, I feel better equipped to handle situations where I am asked to advise people as to their options and opportunities based on their circumstances, concerns, and interests without making their decision for them. . .
[which] I have since been able to put to fantastic use in law school."
"I have been able to hone in on a clearer career path."
