Externs You May Know

Doug Hendry, Senior Editor

Name: Emily Powers
Class Year: 2018
Hometown: Glenside, Pennsylvania
Major: Economics and Geography
Company: Ralph Lauren
Takeaway: They really emphasized doing what you love and being patient! There’s no reason to jump around to different jobs if you don’t get a raise within six months of being hired; instead, find a great company that you enjoy working for, work hard, and good things will come your way.
Name: Gregory Caso
Class year: 2018
Hometown: Bayville, NY
Major: Creative Writing and History
Company: Valerie Wilson Travel, Inc.
What I took away: The most important thing I took away from my externship experience was to keep an open mind and explore! You never know what kind of opportunities you may find until you start looking. Look at companies you know about, and also those you don’t. You might surprise yourself by finding your passion in a hidden place. Just stay true to yourself and what you want to do, the rest will fall into place.

Takeaway: I took away a lot from this experience but the one thing that has stuck with me is the importance of networking and making connections with professionals in as many places as possible.
