MSMC Internships - A Great Way to Make a Difference

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own."
 - Benjamin Disraeli

Internships combine practical work experiences with academic majors and career goals. Nothing can add a professional dimension and powerful credentials to a student’s education better than an internship experience.

 Mary-Ann Raftery, class of 2013Mary Ann Raftery, ’13, communications major from Long Island, recently interned with the FDNY Foundation in Brooklyn and will be serving as a public relations intern at Polo Ralph Lauren in New York City this spring. According to Mary Ann, “Experience is key to finding employment after graduation in any field. By taking advantage of the internship program through the Mount Saint Mary College Career Center, I have gained more confidence in my abilities and it has prepared me for my professional life after college.”

As a graduate of Mount Saint Mary College, you are in a wonderful position to affect the professional development of a Mount student. If you or your company hires interns, consider taking a Mount intern under your wing and having a hand in a student’s professional growth.

If your company is not in the Hudson Valley or in Manhattan, a summer internship would be a wonderful option for a Mount student living in your area. Many of our students hail from the Albany area, Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut.
