Follow the journey and experiences of Aaron Jaffe, a speech communication major with a public relations concentration, who is interning at the University of Münster for the spring 2016.
My summer internship (2015) with the Lancaster Farmland Trust was awesome for a few reasons. As I approach my last year at Millersville, interning this summer has allowed me to see first-hand the information I have spent the last few years learning. Being able to apply the skills I have learnt in class provided me with a sense of accomplishment - my education has been paying off. For this reason, I would highly recommend an internship to fellow MU students. Interning has provided me with a sense of excitement for what my future career may hold. It has refreshed my desire to learn, knowing that I am not just working towards a grade point average and good test grade, I am working towards building a skill set that will help me as I graduate and take my first steps into the “real world”. -Emily Fucci, Geography, Environmental Studies 2016
Millersville's previous branding still resonated with students; "Seize the Opportunity!" Randall Coder, Business Administration, Management 2015, thought to himself - "if I can earn money and earn credits at the same time, I might as well grasp this internship opportunity."
"The real life experience made my time in the classroom more meaningful. The best part of the experience was that it opened the door to a full time job. I am thrilled to have started working full-time at my internship site immediately following graduation. Without the internship program, I would not have felt adequately prepared to enter the work force. I am grateful to Millersville for providing the internship program and for the enriched educational experience the program offers." -Kristen Straley, Business Administration, Accounting 2012
"Take advantage of internships! I did three when I was a student, and they were all fantastic. They were at radio stations where I got to learn how to use equipment and meet people who I would later work with after graduation. Persistence is the real key, no matter what field you are working in. Never be afraid to put yourself out there and pester people! The more people you meet when you're in school, the more success you're probably going to have later in life." -Nipsey; The People's DJ, 1995
