Alum: Jacquelyn Wegmann, '08 ECON Major Web Analyst, Thomson Reuters Corporation "Attention to detail and good communication skills are also key. Whether on the phone, through email, or in an instant message, you need to be able to ask clear questions and provide clear responses."
Intern: Adam Steinbach, '14 PSYC Major Extended Care / Therapy Intern, Lutheran Social Services "Open your mind and go for it. There is no better way to get real world experience. The classroom is great but it can't simulate what a true work environment will look like. Don't allow yourself to be a passive participant in the internship either...get involved in the work place, it can really help you grow professionally."
