-immersion in a corporate environment
-workshops and personal development activities that helped polish and prepare us for careers after college
-hands-on experience in multiple departments was invaluable
-the attentiveness of the EBF staff, always available, always helpful, concerned with our well-being and best interests
-paid internships with matching funds from the Foundation helped my family and I immensely..the financial burden of attending a university such as Syracuse that charges well over $50k annually to attend was greatly eased by the generosity of the Foundation and its corporate partners. Thank You.
-the summer conference where we were able to listen to and speak with leaders in the industry to help us gain a better understanding of the careers we were seeking
No cons.. The Emma Bowen Foundation has been a blessing, and as I stated before, I shudder to think about my career trajectory had I not had the experience, training, development, and networking opportunities that EBF provided.
Advice to Potential Interns
EMF is extremely competitive, and understandably so. Students who succeed in EBF are unafraid of challenges, studious, well-rounded and professional. Do all that you can to be accepted into the EBF family, because it is just that, a family. I completed my internship 7 years ago, and have maintained many friendships with other interns throughout the years.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! Thank you for everything.
