Internships That Make a Difference

Caitlyn Laughner
My experience at the Literacy Coalition provided me with a deeper understanding of how important basic reading skills are to everyday life. I was enrolled in an Honors Colloquium about poverty this semester, and there is a lot of intersection between poverty and education. Most of the people who struggle with literacy have faced real-life consequences because of it.  Any time we are given the opportunity to step into the workforce, whether it be with a non-profit agency or a company, we are granted the opportunity to grow--not only as students, but as a professional.

Internships can open doors for you and they are great experiences to help you know if that is a career path that you would really enjoy. Also, if you do not get into the internship of your choice on the first try, keep applying and do not give up. I did not get into the Disney College Program on my first try or my second. I had to apply three times before I was accepted into the program. I kept trying to be accepted into the program and I am so glad that I did because it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I made so many great friends and memories.

It is great to find a company who is willing to truly invest in you and you are passionate about taking advantage of opportunities, then looking for an internship that will deliver those things will take you beyond what you believed to be possible before you've even completed your degree. Lastly, don't forget that a simple smile and willingness to learn goes a long way with people. People like to teach people so don't shy away from this wonderful experience to make connections and learn about a future career.

I learned a lot about pushing myself, taking chances, problem solving, learning to figure things out, how to successfully market and organize an event, advertising, and how to apply communication in every aspect of employment. Internships open up networking opportunities and chances to apply and push yourself beyond the classroom. It is where textbooks and theory meet real world application. It also teaches you about the field of study you are wanting to go into and prepares you for that field in a way that a classroom can't.
