Why did you decide to do an internship?

I chose to do an internship because I really wanted to prepare myself for the work world and I knew the best way to do that would be to get real work experience through an internship.

If you could tell someone one reason why they should partake in an internship, what would you say?

Experience, Experience, Experience.. There is so much that you can not be taught in a class room about the work world. Through internships you are really thrown into what it will be like when you graduate and plus it looks great on a resume.

What was the most memorable experience you had while interning?

The most memorable experience I had while interning was when I was offered a job after interning with the company. It just proved to me that all my hard work paid off.

What was the biggest obstacle you had to face during your internship?

The biggest obstacle while interning was time management. I was interning while taking four classes while being in field hockey season, it was hard at first to fit everything in... BUT it also turned into the biggest blessing at the same time because I was really able to learn how to prioritize and has made me way better with time management.

What advice would you give to students who are interested in doing an internship but haven't applied yet?

The biggest advice would be to apply.. doing an internship can only help build you as a professional in the world.
