“I found it extremely useful to create a personal career plan at the end of my internship. Thinking about my strengths, weaknesses and future steps was a helpful way to organize my time as a student and soon-to-be worker in the real world. Overall, I am extremely thankful for having had the experience of interning in the Dominican Republic, and being able to work to get credit from Elon made the experience even more fulfilling and relevant to my future career.”
