- At the American Cancer Society office
Name: Ashley Proietti
Hometown: Lunenburg, MA
Expected year of graduation: 2010
Internship Sponsor: American Cancer Society
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.
