"What Has Your Internship Allowed You To Do?" Spring 2015 Interns in the Co-op Program Respond

Aaron Jackson - Junior
Double Major in Financial Markets & Economic Analysis and Applied Mathematics
This is my desk at Cerner Corporation, where I have worked for last year with the Global Mobility team. We are responsible for relocating associates throughout the world and by doing this, I have gotten the chance to work with a great team. My goal going into an internship was to be introduced to a corporation and start to understand what I should be expecting when I graduate from college. I believe that I have accomplished this goal.
Anna Mincher - Senior - Accounting Major
 Working at the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority allows me take concepts I have learned in the classroom and practice them in a real world setting.  I am able to get first-hand experience with working in a government funded organization and broaden my knowledge of governmental accounting. Growing up in Kansas City and interning at Arrowhead Stadium has allowed me to incorporate my hometown pride into my work which keeps everyday fun and interesting.
 John Bahlinger - Senior - Corporate Finance & Accounting Major
 Working at the Hamilton Retirement Group has given me the insights on what it takes to become a financial advisor. In the picture above, I am filling out our retirement income plan. I am gathering financial information from a prospective client to complete this plan. This shows individuals what they can expect to live off depending on what they have saved in their different retirement accounts.
Keith Williams - Senior - Exercise & Sports Science Major
My internship working the Rockhurst University Athletic Training staff has been a great experience and has given me a glimpse of what it is like to work as an athletic trainer. Working with college athletes on a daily basis has been great experience and is a career I would be interested in pursuing after completing this internship. The Rockhurst Trainers have been very helpful and have taught me a lot about the field over the course of this semester and I am very grateful for the chance to learn from them.
Nicholas Borders - Senior - Accounting Major
Here I am entering invoices into the accounting system, which is the most time consuming part of my tasks. It is amazing to see how far I have come from last year to this year. I remember when I first started, I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. Now, I hardly get stressed and have to ask very few questions. I feel that I know the people I work with very well and can really relate to them.
