The company invests a lot of time and resources in a college students growth, that may or may not make it...that astounds me. I learned from the top of the company and their success and failures. I was also recognized for my success. I had the opportunity to lead others in the internship. I also had the ability to change people's lives, as a college student. I don't know if it gets better than that.

Awesome mentors. Live bullet to the full time career. Positive energy and built in time for fun. Win for clients, win for the company/person if they choose to go full time, win for others who don't go full time as it leads them many times to their next career inadvertently!

Downers

People who don't stick in it the whole summer don't see the real picture of opportunity available

Mentors really do care about you, whether this is the career for you or leading you into your next job and being prepared for obstacles you might face
