I never forgot where it all began! Yes, the internship…. that initial door that was opened, that pivotal opportunity to test the waters…. the rest was history! As a point of inspiration, many would say I experienced a meteoric rise to leadership. Having gone from intern, to philanthropist, to Presidential Advisor, to Entrepreneur. However, it is not the titles that will remain most near to my memory. Instead, I will forever remember and cherish the journey, the people that I helped along the way, and most importantly, that it all started with the internship!
The initial internship opportunity helped me to build confidence, polish my professional acumen, fine-tune direction, and turn my passion into my profession. Now more than ever, internships are the key gateway into a competitive workforce facing today’s college students and recent graduates. Employers can be highly selective about whom they hire in the current job market, and in most cases, all prefer to hire graduates that bring some level of practical experience to the table. Remember, a college degree is great, but a degree, plus real-world experience is even better!
Whether you are looking for an internship as a student or recent grad, an employer looking to engage untapped talent and promote your business, or a college career center manager looking to expand your network……our 2-day consumer show, Your Turn Intern Expo & Celebrity Fest, is where you want to be!
We look forward to sharing this unforgettable weekend in 2017 with you and encourage you to stay informed with updates meanwhile!
