SOME QUOTES FROM 2012 INTERNS:
"Jeff City START was a highly beneficial program for my internship experience. It allowed me to network with professionals in Jefferson City as well as with other interns. It was also very inofmrative in regard to how to improve my professional image and be desirable to employers. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who has an internship in Jefferson City."
"Participating in the Jeff City START program afforded me the opportunity to ask questions and learn from current members of the business community to better myself and simultaneously become a more attractive potential employee. It is a rare opportunity to be able to ask those types of upfront questions outside of an environment like the START program."
Chairperson of the Internship Initiative Program Committee is Stephanie Bell, Blitz, Bardgett & Deutsch. The committee is staffed by Susan Albert, Chamber Membership & Special Events Director.
