Here’s what recent career change interns are saying…

This internship contributed to my long term goals because I would like to pursue a path or career in corporate sustainability - the relevant experience gained will help me for the future.

This Social Work internship provided insight into potential therapeutic professions, as well as my own capabilities within. I feel more empowered and confident having an idea of my role and gauging my experience level.

I was tasked with. My favourite memory from the internship was after I presented the project management manual I have been assigned to compile. I remember feeling a sense of pride, since I had worked really hard on it, researching, and learning all kinds of new things. It was very satisfying to complete it and be recognized for my work.

My role as a law intern for a marine conservation institute contributed greatly toward my primary career goal of attending law school to study environmental law. Prior to starting this internship, I was very confident that environmental law was what I wanted to study and pursue my career in. However, I did not have any law background, nor any experience in environmental studies. Having studied international relations and foreign policy, there are certainly similarities, but I definitely needed something to assure myself that this is what I could see myself dedicating my life to. This internship has been amazing in this respect as it was somewhat of a crash course introduction into law and policy and how we can use it to protect the natural world.
