How was your experience with Dream Careers summer internship program in Washington D.C.? Who did you work for? What projects did you work on or what events did you attend?
My experience this past summer with Dream Careers was amazing! I made so many memories and friends that I will never forget. I was also able to really first hand experience in my field as well as start to see what the world is going got be like outside of college. I worked at RedPeg Marketing while I was in Washington, D.C. I attended all of Dream Careers’ events, which were extremely informative and inspirational. The speakers really motivated us all to go out and do our best every day at work in order to get noticed by our employers.
How did this internship allow you to be successful in finding your current full time position?
The internship gave me a strong understanding of how companies work and what employers are looking for. Not only did I learn so much about Marketing but I also was given the confidence I needed to know that I am a great employee. I believe that is what shined through and helped me do so well in all of my interviews and ultimately helped me get the job I have now.
Would you recommend the Dream Careers summer internship programs to other Eller students?
I honestly think the Dream Careers summer internship program should be an Eller requirement. The program helped show me how the business world really is and allowed me to use the skills I learned at Eller in real life situations. Eller students who are looking to get inspired and excited about starting successful careers should enroll in a Dream Careers program!
