Student Testimonials:
 
“It was such an incredible experience to be working with a vector that transmits malaria and we were so privileged to be working on a project that can make a difference in countries that have malaria. It is a great feeling to think that maybe the work that I did can help with malaria control efforts.” Christiane Gasparetto
 
“In my summer semester at Broward College, myself and some other students were given the opportunity to meet with Vice President Howdyshell and discuss our experience as students. I mentioned that I wanted to write grants in the future, and she offered me an internship with the Grants office at the college. I was then introduced to Ellyn Drotzer, A.V.P. of Resource Development and Planning, who decided to take me on and mentor me in grant writing. The program has given me valuable understanding of the ins and outs of grant writing. If it weren’t for the opportunity that Broward College gave me, I would never have discovered what my future job is like. I realized that I still have a long way to go but, I am very grateful to Vice President Howdyshell, Ellyn Drotzer, and everyone else at Broward College who made this possible.” Linda Pierre
 
“I learned about SunServe from a company that I did community service hours with. I liked my experience at SunServe because it was in the Social work field. My major is Social work. SunServe painted a perfect picture for me, I was able to experience different parts of social works. When I was doing my internship hours I saw a future in my field. I enjoy helping people in my community. This was by far, the best elective credit ever! It wasn't just school work, it was experience, job opportunity, and knowledge. We learn a lot from reading our text books, but we learn even better when we are working in the field. This is a great experience for anyone who wants to take learning outside of the class room.” Mickerlange Augustin

“My internship experience at Broward College's Media Relations Department was amazing. I was able to sharpen my writing skills and given the opportunity to have hands on experience which provided me with a better understanding of the industry. This internship benefitted me by helping me prepare for the next step in my career and leaving with plenty of great writing samples to share with future employers. The best part of my internship experience was getting to know the staff members of the department and having them support and help me through my internship.” Paola Alacron

 
Employer Testimonials:
 
BECON-TV, Jim Guarasci, Executive Producer
“I was very happy with the students we’ve had from Broward College. They came in very eager, were very professional and worked hard. They did a good job for us and I think they learned a lot, too. Broward College’s Central Campus is right across from us, so it’s an easy place for the students to get to. I look forward to having more Broward College interns.”

CREATIVE ADVERTISING - Paula Celestino, Broward College Graduate and Director of Social Media
“Our experience with a Broward College intern was fantastic. She was very, very professional and organized. She surpassed all the expectations we had for her. We were very happy with her and how she did…and we hired her.”
“We’ve had interns from other colleges in the area and the Broward College program was longer and more involved. The Broward College professors were very involved with the students during the process of the internship. They were frequently checking with us and the student, and stayed close to the student throughout the process.”

Faculty Testmionials:
 
Joseph Metts, Computer Science Professor
“Internships are a valuable tool for both the instructor and the student. As a Faculty Member, it provides the opportunity to extend learning beyond the classroom. As a result, students are afforded the opportunity to apply the material learned in the classroom to real-world situations at their respective work sites. After completing their internship, the student has gained practical knowledge and work experience which can prove to be very valuable when searching for a job in their respective field.”
 
Jennifer Shapiro, Coordinator of Student Publications/Adjunct Journalism Professor
“Broward College’s Internship Edge program provides students with hands on, practical experiences that are essential in taking the lessons they have learned in the classroom and applying them to real world situations. Internships give students additional crucial opportunities outside of the classroom and allow students to network with professionals in their chosen field, which often can lead to job placement in the future. Having an internship is one of the most invaluable and important experiences in a student’s college career.”
