Blog Entry:

Interning with the American Cancer Society is a life changing and irreplaceable experience.  It has given me the opportunity to help people suffering with cancer by using the communication and research skills I have learned in the classroom.


I have gathered a variety of research for the upcoming endurance events of “Spin for Hope” and “Bikes Battling Cancer”.  The research I find and organize will be used to plan and execute these upcoming events in the spring. I will be able to see all my work for “Bikes Battling Cancer” and “Spin for Hope” come together.  I also perform telemarketing.  I call gyms and bike shops in the New England area to recruit volunteers and participants for events.


Having this internship has given me a chance to demonstrate my skills, knowledge, and confidence; build my resume and create a portfolio.  These elements are extremely important to succeed in the increasingly competitive world of business.
