How did you learn about this opportunity?

I learned about this internship program through my Economics advisor Lori Campbell

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

My experience was great, although I am listed as the finance intern for the office my internship has touched on almost all aspects of the work there. From accounting to sales to management, I was able to do a little bit of it all in addition to mainly finance. This is great for me because I am not 100% certain what field I want to go into, so this touches on various fields with mainly focusing on what I am very interested in which is Finance.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I believe that this program has helped me out tremendously academically because it has instilled work characteristics that will carry over to the classroom. From working with a team to get tasks done, to meeting deadlines, to balancing multiple tasks, I feel that I have improved on all of these aspects. I believe that these traits I have worked on will better myself as a person and as a student at Penn State.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

I don't know exactly what my career plans are thus far because as I stated earlier, I am not entirely sure what field I would like to pursue. What I can say is this experience has tremendously opened my eyes to the amount of work and dedication I have to put in as an employee to work my way up in a company. You are never going to start as the CFO of the company and it takes tremendous work ethic and dedication to get to a point where you can say your goals are completed and met.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

Yes, I would recommend it because it has tremendously helped me in my efforts in becoming a better student and a better employee. It has given me the opportunity to focus on the little things that can make you better and realize what other skills are just as important to develop.
