Jack Donahue, Class of 2014September 16, 2015

The internship course showed me real world skills that I wouldn’t be able to find in a classroom. This course helped me realize what it takes to make it in the world after high school and I feel way more confident going forward.

I had a lot of fun working at my internship! I found my internship to be very helpful in figuring out what direction I wanted to head towards in my future studies. I was also able to gain some field experience and I made valuable networking connections that I can use in the future.

Nathan Federico, Class of 2014

My internship at the Courtyard Marriott: Burlington Harbor Hotel was a great experience. While interning there I learned not only the multiple aspects to an industry that was completely new to me, but how to own a business, an important field that which I planned on, and are pursuing in college. Aside from my internship itself, the Internship course taught me the importance of professionalism, making smart career choices, and being adventurous and willing when it comes to work experience.

Katie Combs, Class of 2014

There isn’t a better way to transition from the classroom to life outside of school than through Community Internship. By focusing on the small details of how to write a professional resume and how to interview competently, to the major step of actually participating in a business that directly related to my interests was the most helpful way to learn which direction I wanted to go towards after high school. I now feel confident that I have the necessary skills to succeed in my chosen career.

Sydney Duncan, Class of 2014

Being an intern at PT360 taught me a lot about what the real world is like. I experienced what it will be like to have to take on more responsibility, as well as learning to communicate with all kinds of people-elderly, young children, or very serious clients- which has helped my communication skills to this day. I am very thankful for the opportunity to have been able to intern in such a great environment with such amazing people that are saving lives every day.

Andrew Cimonetti, Class of 2014

My internship with the Facilities Director of Fletcher Allen Health Care was one of the highlights of my senior year at EHS. I had always known I wanted to work in a career that was hands on, so facilities manager seemed like the perfect fit for me. I learned all about the types of training I will need for the job, what happens on a day-to-day basis, as well as made some great networking connections for a future career. I was really treated as a part of the staff and given real jobs and tasks to work on. This internship caused me to switch my major to Mechanical Engineering, and set me on the right track for college.
