Hear from Past Interns

I learned to be confident in my abilities even though I am the youngest team member, and being okay asking questions has been important. I think it is awesome that my first workplace experience expects me to ask questions in order to learn.
I really enjoyed being able to listen and learn from other professionals. This was the first year my supervisor was in charge of the Irish Fair, and we had no manual or master plan, so using what I had learned in my courses at UNW, I was able to greatly contribute. Together, we developed a huge master plan, and it really gave me a great chance to learn all the aspects of planning an event. Making the master plan also doubled as one of my final projects for Dr. Kaiser’s course.


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 teamwork
out of 5 average for positive work ethic
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.
CEO of CareProfiler
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.
