Tell us your internship stories!


Internships are an important avenue for students to learn in-demand skills, apply their newly attained knowledge and gain workplace experience. They also give employers the opportunity to learn about the needs and ideas of the incoming generation of employees and leaders.

Memories made and lessons learned from internships stay with us for our entire careers. 

In advance of National Intern Day on July 25, we want to hear your stories of working with – or as – interns. What did you learn that has helped guide you on your career path? Were there any unexpected, life-changing or humorous moments that have stuck with you?

If you would like to share, please fill out this form and remember to include your name, title, time and location of the internship, and any photos from the experience.

We'll include your stories in the July 24 edition of Lo Que Pasa.
