The Internship Academy was a great help to me. Not only was I interning and gaining a lot of experience, I was also given college credit. That was a big plus. The assignments helped me out a lot like the perfect interview, I will be using that more often. Also turning in my resume and getting some tips on how to make a better one really helped me out.
