Amazing Personal Growth!
Albany, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning the real world application of aspects from college! Actually doing it for myself, not having to file or do administrative duties for anyone else!


Downers

Nothing, my internship was exactly what I was looking for.


Advice to Potential Interns

You actually get to do it for yourself! You're not an intern who is actually an administrative assistant like all the other internships I've heard about from friends. You not only grow personally, but professionally as well! They also pay for your licensing, which is something you have on your resume going forward.


Sample Interview Questions

Am I a self starter? Am I organized? What motivates me? What's my vision for the future?


Advice to Management

Everything is really good right now. I wouldn't change anything.
