Internship Success Stories

Alan BunnAlthough he has held two previous marketing internships, Bunn acknowledges the excitement that he has for interning at a communications firm, a position that is certain to provide a very different experience from any position that he has held in the past. Sure to be a resume booster, Bunn says that he looks forward to attaining concrete work experience to complement the theory that he has learned in his academic courses. "Having the opportunity to spend an entire semester as an intern at a first-rate communications firm in Washington, D.C., while receiving academic credit for the experience is definitely one of the highlights of my college career," he said.
