Why Do An Internship?

Aaron Bos-Lun ’12, who spent Summer 2010 interning at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, writes, “You get to see a different side of issues, of work, and of people . . . Even if you determine you don’t want to spend your career doing that particular thing, you will make your life choices with more confidence and awareness knowing why you are choosing what you are choosing.  With an internship, you have nowhere to go but up, and for some people internships are the starting point for traveling very far.”
