Internship Info for Students

"I whole-heartedly believe that my internship with [non-profit employer] made my Wisconsin Experience. I don't think that any other institution could teach me so much about how the world works at the different levels of city, state, and nation. I emerge from this internship a more educated citizen and with the desire to search for the knowledge in everything I do.”

“The flexibility of the internship was very nice. If school was overwhelming, my supervisor was forgiving and understood if I didn't get a ton of work done. Another positive aspect was the feedback I received from my mentors. Everything was always put in a constructive way and was very helpful moving forward.”
