Steven McKnight

Steven McKnight’s internship at the Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre has introduced him to the long days of working in professional theatre.

EJ Schwartz ’18, development intern at Pretty Pictures Entertainment and Writ Large, Los Angeles, Calif.

“The great thing about working for these two companies is that my job is similar, but the companies are very different. I’m getting to see how production works and how management works, so that’s giving me a better sense of what I want to do and how best to get there. It’s also a great trial run for living in LA, far from my home and awesome family in New Jersey.” (Creative Writing; Scotch Plains, N.J.)

Joann Butkus ’18, researcher with the Summer Medical and Research Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas

“I secured my internship by having a strong background in research. I have completed over 800 hours of chemistry research for Dr. Swarna Basu since my freshman year, and working with him has given me the opportunity to be a published author. My lab experience along with an interest in a medical career made me a strong candidate for this position, and I was very fortunate to be offered it.” (Biochemistry; Barnesville, Pa.)

Austin French ’18, intern in retirement planning and analysis/finance, Prudential Financial, Newark, N.J.

“This internship is exactly what I wanted in my junior year. I wanted to work for a leading financial services company (Top 10 asset manager) and be able to get a feel for the corporate sector. The work I have been doing is very interesting, and I am learning many transferable skills. I have no doubt this internship will give me a competitive edge in the years to come.” (Business Administration–Finance; Susquehanna, Pa.)

Anna Dunn ’17, international sales management intern Ecratum, Berlin, Germany

“I had an amazing opportunity to be chosen by the Stein Fellowship Committee to complete an internship in Berlin, Germany. I hope my experience in sales here in Berlin will pave the way for me to start my postgraduate career in Germany. Through this internship, I had the opportunity to see the start-up culture here in Berlin, and it gave me the confidence to try a job that may be out of my comfort zone.” (Business Administration–Global Management and Economics; North Granby, Conn.)
