We have been very pleased with [our Northwestern] interns…I was extremely impressed with their professionalism, commitment, and ability to produce high quality work both independently and on our team.
It has been a great honor and privilege to continue my education at UNW and I am especially thankful for all the resources in career development. They provided me with useful networking tips and helped in building my resume.
We hired 12 UNW interns in one semester; each of them completed his/her internship with excellence, and left the strong impression that UNW grooms students into transformational leaders in their fields. In fact, a couple of those interns became our full-time employees, and our clients made comments to senior leadership that those former UNW students were their favorite staff.
This internship was beneficial to me because it helped me to learn a lot about the business world and understanding my finances and others' finances.
During the 2016/2017 school year, employers ranked our 228 student interns highly in....
out of 5 average for integrity
out of 5 average for respectful of others
out of 5 average for positive work ethic
