Kaitlyn Fletcher (C’16) interned as research assistant intern with Brecker Grossmith, a commercial real estate business located in the heart of Soho.
The Mount provides students with excellent opportunities for internships on and off-campus; it also offers a host of both study and intern abroad programs. While overseas attending classes for credit, those students who choose to participate in an internship also get practical experience that cannot be taught in classrooms.
While all internships involve a great deal of personal commitment, an international internship promises to be even more challenging and rewarding. Many international organizations offer students significant responsibilities. Former Mount students who have interned abroad have regarded these higher levels of responsibility and expectations to be some of the best experiences of the trip—outside of the chance for traveling and exploring a different country. Interning abroad will help students develop personal strengths and skills that will be useful in marketing themselves on paper and in person when seeking future job opportunities.
Words from a Former Mount Participant
“Studying abroad is about challenging yourself and stretching your limits,” Fletcher explains. “I have definitely experienced this in so many ways in London, but especially through my internship. This opportunity has given me a taste of how a business outside of the United States operates, which is valuable knowledge considering how global and interconnected the business world has become. When I get back to the United States, I will bring this knowledge and sense of confidence with me and use it as I prepare for my career.”
