Readers Respond: Tell Us About Your Internship

Responses: 3


Internships are a way to get the relevant work experience that employers value when interviewing applicants for open positions. Learning about the internship experiences of other students who previously interned at places like the NBA, Digg.com, The National Sculpture Society, and the U.S. Coast Guard, etc., will give you a better sense of the types of opportunities that are available.

If you have completed one or more internships, please feel free to share the good, the bad, and the ugly about your internship and what you valued most about the overall experience.

My amazing internship with Super Interns

At my college, like many, I am required to do an internship before graduation. I am a communications major with a concentration in advertising and promotions, however at 22 I am still unsure about where I want to take my career. I was also unsure where I wanted to intern until I found this great new company called Super Interns. Super Interns is a company that sells products to teach small businesses and large companies how to set up their own internship programs and work virtually with their interns. After my first lunch meeting with one of my supervisors I knew this was the place for me. From the beginning we talked about me, what I wanted to do and get out of this internship. My supervisor asked me what I was and was not interested in so that I was not stuck working on a project I had no interest in. At Super Interns they do not treat you like an intern they treat you like a valuable asset to their company. I was allowed to chose the projects I wanted to work on and chose my own job

Pre-arranged work placement

I took a work placement with Global Work Placements www.globalworkplacements.co.uk and they arranged everything or me. I asked for a placements in Public Relations and I got exactly what I wanted. The people were friendly, kind and even let me stay longer than I anticipated. I thought about finding the internship myself at the beginning, but I am so glad I did not otherwise I would have never have found such a great company!
