What did you find most valuable about your internship experience?
In working with Bryan Graduate Career Services, I really enjoyed doing the personality assessments as it helped me discover the career choices that I enjoy the most.
To get my internship, I attended all the employer events and career fairs that Career Services put together. Brent and Darlene were a great resource for me.
In my internship, I learned that I could use my creativity to provide solutions to everyday problems that the company faced. The internship helped a great deal since I was offered a full time position at completion of my internship.
