In terms of career development, this internship gave me plenty of insight for my future taking into consideration both of my degrees. It gave me the experience to be successful and broadened the employment opportunities available to me upon graduation. I know from my experience that I can choose to work in the communication field immediately out of college.

As an international studies and business major, studying abroad was the prime of my college career. Without this experience, I would not have been able to connect what I learned to real-time situations.
