"My most beneficial experience through CCIP has been the connections I have made, both through and outside of my internship. I had a chance to meet Vice President Kathy Wilbur, who actually put in a recommendation for me in the Governor's office for the internship.I also met Emmy Pontz, who works for Senator Darwin Booher and is Chair of the Young Professional Republicans in Lansing. I have spoken with her more and plan to join the group upon graduation."

How will your internship help you in a future internship or job?

"Both positions have allowed me to see into the world of the state-level public sector first-hand. As a result, I feel much better prepared to work in a professional public sector setting after graduation. In addition, my temporary position with the MDOS led me to a long-term student assistant position working for the same office where I use my newly acquired skills on a daily basis."
