HOW INTERNSHIPS LEAD TO CAREER OUTCOMES
“All of my internships that I have completed not only have prepared me for the future, but have also given me insight on what career path I want to pursue after graduation.” – Gareth Benshoff (Equestrian)
“Having the chance to complete internships and clinicals during my time at Endicott has given me the hands on experience I need to excel in my field. Through my internship and clinical involvement, I have gained the confidence I need to be an effective leader, and I also think completing internships and clinicals is important to my success upon graduation because it helps me prepare for the transition to becoming a registered nurse (RN).” – Lawrence Gonzalez (Football)
“Getting a job out of college has never been more competitive than it is now, and in an age where everyone has a degree you need something to set you apart from the rest. Being able to put down real life experience as an undergraduate student on your resume is extremely valuable not only to me, but also for my potential future employer. In my case, I will have two 400-hour internships completed when I graduate and that experience will be invaluable when I apply for a job.” – Steve Morganelli (Baseball)
“If you asked me what type of nurse I wanted to be my freshman year I probably would have given you several different answers. Now, after completing my last rotation, it is my goal to become a labor and delivery nurse. Interning at several different hospitals throughout my undergraduate career has allowed me to really get to know myself better and figure out what specialty I really want to focus on post-graduation. If I didn’t have the chance to complete multiple clinical rotations I am not sure I would have arrived at what I truly wanted to do in my career before graduating.” – Jamie Corda (Softball)
