Major: Organizational Communication
Expected Year of Graduation: 2010
Internship Sponsor: Assumption College Institutional Advancement
We must always remember the importance of giving back, which is the idea the Institutional Advancement Office works very hard to instill in the minds of alumni. Throughout the semester, I am statistically analyzing phone-a-thon programs and direct mailing programs, and researching other colleges’ Annual Fund projects. I also assist with the Senior Class Gift Campaign, the President’s Council Dinner and the Career Networking Event.
Over the last three years, Assumption College has given me more than I could imagine. It has given me the opportunity to make lasting friendships, receive a valuable education and network with both faculty and administration. Assumption College has given me the skills I will need to succeed in a “real world” business setting. This internship is an experience which allows me to take the skills I have learned in the classroom, and use them in a professional setting.
Intensive coursework in Business and Technical Writing, Marketing and Strategic Managerial Communication have given me communication and writing training that I have used in my internship. These combined skills have given me the tools to update the website and participate in staff meetings.
This internship has been a great opportunity for me. I am interning in a field that I can see as a career. Having an internship now, not only looks great on my resume, but will give me an idea of what I can expect about the workplace. This process will help me make the transition from a student to an individual ready to take on the real world.
