Blog Entry

For the past three years, Assumption College has been my home – a home where I am surrounded by my best friends, great professors, and an excellent academic education. Assumption has also provided me with the knowledge and skills I need to succeed in the business environment. My internship has been a valuable experience because I am able to take what I have learned here at Assumption College and apply it in a business setting.

 

There have been many instances in which I have been able to use the knowledge and skills I have gained from classes in my Organizational Communication major and directly apply them to my internship. For instance, in my Business Research Methods class I learned how to do in-depth business research. This skill is helpful to me in researching my ongoing safety project. I use the oral, written and effective communication skills that I have learned everyday at my internship.

 

This opportunity has provided me with hands-on experience, allowed me to become part of a team and has enabled me to make valuable contributions. I now feel prepared for the real-world setting that I will enter when I graduate. This internship has allowed me to realize that I have matured from a student to an independent, career woman ready to enter the job market.
