"If I am being completely honest, I had no idea what to expect walking into this internship. I thought maybe it would be related to the buzzwords often associated with the word 'internship'. Stapling, filing, and maybe even coffee runs. However, at the end of this intership I am walking away a completely different person. In the past 6 weeks I have learned more about the business world than I have sitting in any classroom for a whole 10 months. Everyone here at NBCF, including top executives, went out of there way to make time to talk to us about resume building, networking, professionalism, and even public speaking. All the employees went out of their way to make sure that we would get the best learning experience possible, and treated us as if we were their co-workers rather than just high schoolers. We were thrown from a world of calling all business professionals and adults Mr. and Mrs. to having open conversations with them on a first name basis. We were forced to step out of our comfort zones and grow professionally. I will forever be grateful for the connections and skills I have established during this internship."
