Story: Paid Work Experience

In by Paige Haberkorn

Here's a Quick Story

“I’m in an internship program. My school helped me set it up when I was a sophomore. I got to pick an internship in the field I’m trying to get into. I want to be a nursing assistant. I got an internship at the hospital and now I’m working in the surgical lounge. I take the patient there when they’re done with surgery. You get real life experience and a paycheck. Once you start, if you decide your internship isn’t right for you, you can move into a different position.”
