Intern: Molly Flaig, Communication Major Yearbook Marketing Intern, Lifetouch National School Studios "At first it is nerve-wracking to be an intern-you don't know anyone, have no idea how the company functions and think all of your ideas are bad ideas. Because of that I was hesitant at first to ask questions or chime in on major meetings or conference calls. But after a couple weeks I became comfortable and realized they hired me for my ideas! So I started to give input at meetings and take initiative. It was really rewarding to see my ideas take shape and come to life."
Alum: Mike Rakes, Entrepreneur: Philia Foods Founder and CEO of Philia Foods "You cannot be afraid of hard work, and you have to go into every situation with a ton of energy and enthusiasm. Even if you have no idea what you're doing, energy and enthusiasm (especially in the early stages of a career) go a long way towards differentiating you from other employees and/or business."
