WHAT INTERNSHIPS HAVE MEANT TO OUR PLAYERS:
"It gave me confidence in my ability to perform critical situations and helped to develop my leadership skills." -Sophomore Sydney Koh
"My internship experience gave me great exposure to how a small company is operated. I was able to put my foot in the door in different aspects of the company. I assisted in accounting, creating in promotional gear for the company, and even got to sit in on some sales call and meetings. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and it opened doors into the business sector that I hope to explore more of." -Junior Meghan Holland
"I found it extremely beneficial to take this research opportunity in Belize because I am able to have an incredible out-of-country experience during my Smith career. It also gave me amazing work experience." - Senior Mandy Castro
Internships are CRITICAL for students to get ahead academically and here at SMITH College we give ALL students the ability to pursue opportunities to expand their education even when they can't afford it!
