Summer Internship Successes!
Students in the School of Business at St. Thomas Aquinas College continue to have impressive and successful Internship experiences over the Summer months. Students majoring in Finance, Marketing, Sports Management, Human Resources and more, "studied beyond" our classroom walls in both paid and academic opportunities. Banking institutions, corporations, sporting arenas and various companies hosted our students so that they could build their resumes, network in their desired fields and gain invaluable experience in their potential careers. Below, Donald Hazelton poses with a group of student interns from various institutions at Sterling Bank in Long Island, NY. Donald acquired a full-time, paid position at Sterling's commercial loan center this past Summer. Great job Donald!
Alexa Farese made quite an impression this Summer interning at the major brand and nationwide company, FLOMO/Nygala Corporation in Moonachie, NJ. http://www.flomousa.com/. General Manager of Operations, Tina Thomson, made some wonderful remarks about Alexa. "Alexa Farese was great! She learned a lot and not only about the work here - more importantly she shared that she has learned life lessons. Alexa did a fabulous presentation of her work to the whole board and several colleagues the day she was leaving, and I was handed a heart-warming thank you card for the special lessons learnt. Very rewarding!". Below is a recording of Alexa Farese on FLOMO TV. Alexa represented our College in the best kind of ways. We are very proud of Alexa!
