As the weather changes and the holiday season looms around the corner, summer internship opportunities may be far from your mind. Summer may be months away, but now is the time to explore your options to enhance your resume and prepare yourself for your post-graduation career.
At Dardis Academy, we have a team of recruitment managers dedicated to keeping your summer 2014 internship top of mind. These recruitment managers tour their designated regions to attend career fairs, college information sessions and more to promote the unique Classroom to Career internship program with Dardis.
We will feature our recruitment managers regularly on this blog to share the true spirit of Dardis and encourage you or a college student in your life to apply for this life-changing internship! Applications must be processed by May 1, but space is limited, so don’t delay!
In our first recruitment manager spotlight, we introduce Samantha Kheim:
What is the greatest benefit of the Dardis Classroom to Career internship program?
The ability to apply skills from the Academy as an entrepreneur. I am also very excited to see young adults start their professional networking early on.
What sets the Dardis internship apart from other internship opportunities?
In most internships, students find themselves only exposed to the company through what they hear and see when they are making copies. With Dardis, they are the business.
Why do you think it’s important for students to gain real life career experience while in college?
The #1 quality that employers look for on a resume is real world experience. Even if your extracurricular activities and GPA are off the charts, they want to find someone who have proven experience getting a job done.
What Dardis intern success stories do you share with prospective interns?
My favorite success story is Elliot Salter. Elliot went through the Dardis Academy in 2013 and was one of our top-sellers. He is an example of working smart. Elliott made $3,200 in a summer, when many of his peers were sitting at home. He did all of that in about 30 hours per week.
In one word, what’s Dardis all about?
Where can students find you?
Culver-Stockton College, UMSL, Washington University, SLU, Webster University, Truman State University and more to come!
