Women's Colleges Secure the Best Interships for Their Students

Having over twenty-years as a recruiter, I know firsthand how important internships are and how they enhance your ability to secure employment after college.

Women’s colleges do an outstanding job of arranging internships for their students – take a look at Agnes Scott College and the internship they arranged for Elizabeth Rowe ’15.

Elizabeth is interning in Washington, D.C., this summer at the U.S. Green Building Council. As an international relations major (while minoring in sustainability), Elizabeth feels this internship will be extremely helpful to her and her career. Learn more by reading her blog post.

Agnes Scott College’s motto is "educating women to think deeply, live honorably and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times." To learn more, visit their Web site.

Wikipedia reference: "Agnes Scott College is a private liberal arts college in downtown Decatur, Georgia. The college was founded in 1889 as Decatur Female Seminary by Presbyterian minister Frank H. Gaines."

  1. You're right, Diane! Stephens College (the 2nd oldest women's college in the country) has students interning all over the world this summer. We had a film student on the set of a documentary in Thailand, a marketing student working in the British Virgin Islands and several students at major corporations, including Cosmopolitan magazine and Saks Fifth Avenue. Internships are required for most of our programs, so we make sure students get the best! Keep up the excellent coverage of women's colleges.
