“I held an internship in the Environmental Compliance Division at Holland America headquarters in Seattle. While I learned a lot about the maritime industry, my main take-away was the experience of taking my Environmental Studies knowledge from the classroom and applying it to real world scenarios producing positive concrete results.”
“I learned that many career choices are linked to majors I wouldn’t have put together, which made me feel less restricted in my major degree of study.”
“As a Senate Intern I did a lot of correspondence work. As a Political Science and Strategic Communications double major, this was the perfect internship for me. I applied both of my majors daily, as well as met and worked with people who inspired me and wanted to support me in my future endeavors.”
“I came to this trek feeling lost and adrift; now I have a greater sense of hope and direction!
“Many employees at the Pacific Science Center had degrees seemingly unrelated to their career paths, as well as many of them not knowing what they wanted to do with their degrees while they were getting them. This showed me the value of a diverse work experience, which can build your skillset and allow you to see what you like and don’t like in a career setting.”
