What Student Interns are saying...


"My internship has been one of the best experiences I have had all throughout my undergraduate experience."


"The internship was a great experience and a welcomed opportunity to demonstrate skills I acquired in the classroom and apply them in a production environment."


"At the conclusion of the internship, my goal of becoming employed was met as well as my hopes of becoming a faster, more efficient, and more productive programmer."


"Being able to see how managerial finance works in the real world was an amazing and beneficial experience for me. This gave me a chance to put what I learned in the classroom to work on things besides homework and exams."


"Throughout my internship I learned that, while school is integral to my learning the concepts of Marketing, it cannot provide me with all I need to know about the marketing field."


"My internship has definitely given me a better understanding of my skill set and where my career may take me."


"The people I worked with were from all different regions and brought diversity to my attention. For example, I communicated with people from India and quickly learned that this was a lot different than communicating with people from Atlanta or Miami."


"I was unsure about my major prior to this experience, but now I am more aware of the potential opportunities that may be out there."


"Overall, the internship I believe was an absolute success. I learned a great deal more about insurance products as well as how to build a holistic plan with a client."
