Internship Success Stories

Meredith Leigh MacalusoAs an Organizational Leadership student, my internship with The Crescent Club definitely improved my skills of working together with other people to accomplish a goal. I have improved my ability to speak in front of others. My internship provided an opportunity for me to be involved in the organization of events that were being held at The Crescent Club. I was trusted with getting everything set up and making sure the event went smoothly. I loved this experience and learned an incredible amount that will help me with all future careers.

Through internships, the community offers students the opportunity to:

  • Enhance professional development with first hand experience in the world of work
  • Build an effective resume that results in better job offers after graduation
  • Improve knowledge, skills, and abilities to meet career goals
  • Develop a network of professional contacts
  • Reinforce learning received in course work experience

Employers rate relevant work experience as the most important criteria during the job selection process. A high quality internship provides the key to a more meaningful education and a brighter future.
