How did you find your internship?: “My roommate, who was an intern for the Center for Career Planning during the 2016-2017 academic year, told me about this internship!  She knew it would be a perfect fit for me and was so excited when I decided to apply.”
Memory/something learned in first week: “Surprisingly, internships are not as scary as they sound!  Having never worked in an office environment, I was apprehensive about being the first face anyone saw when walking into the Center for Career Planning.  Luckily, most people recognize that I am young, new to the position, and still learning, so they laugh with me when I make mistakes or stumble over my words.  From my first day, my supervisors made it clear they are here to mentor me and help me grow, not yell at me and tear me down.  What a relief!”
