Imagine. You spot the perfect internship online and apply. They call you for an interview. They promise college credit, it pays $15 per hour to start, and you get to work from your couch! What could be better than that? Absolutely nothing. Well, that is until you’ve done three weeks of work before you realize that ACME Corporation was actually the evil fictional company from Loony Tunes responsible for falling anvils and other disasters.

You’ve become the victim of an internship scam.

It didn’t used to be the case, but as the job hunt has grown more competitive, employers are zeroing in on candidates who need the least amount of training right out of the gate. True, you may have a long list of previous work history, but that summer job tossing pizza crusts in the air isn’t going to do you any favors in front of the hiring manager at that accounting management firm you’ve had your eye on for months.

Working here at the U.S. Embassy in Kingston, Jamaica has been a most incredible experience. Having followed my father to all his diplomatic posts but one (Afghanistan), gave me a sneak peek into the world of American diplomacy. However, being able to work in the environment as a growing adult has allowed me to apply and further my knowledge of business and diplomacy.

The Time is Now to Start Looking for a Summer UNCW Intern

Consistently, we hear from students throughout the spring semester, “I would prefer a summer internship in Wilmington.” 

However, the number of interested students outnumber the opportunities available. Therefore, many students end up going elsewhere to gain applied learning experience.

Is your business losing out on this valuable resource located within your community? Furthermore, from an economics viewpoint, could this be considered an opportunity cost?

The Four M's

As I stepped into 890 Broadway for the first time, I was immediately enchanted by the classic elevator that carried me to the little office of one of the greatest ballet companies in the world. This little office, however, is also home to not just amazing artistic talent, but to a job that I had only dreamed of doing until this summer. The opportunity to combine my marketing degree with my lifelong passion for ballet has been incredible, and much like how marketing revolves around the four P’s (product, place, price, promotion), I have found that my internship could be summed up in a similar way, but with four M’s.

Experiential learning is a crucial element of a college education. As defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, “An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.” Therefore, internships provide solutions for employers by assisting with workflow in an effective manner to accomplish immediate goals and through finding new team members to help grow the business and accomplish long-term goals.

I met Liz at the spring CEN mixer and we got close very quickly. I was itching to find an internship before I left for a month-long trip to London with a Cameron School of Business faculty lead program. She helped me immensely and set up a meeting with her former employers, Mark Johnson Custom Homes.
