Internship: Portfolio Optimization Intern at Berkeley Research Group; Post-Grad Plans: MBA at Assumption College

I attended the career and alumni networking night last fall, and through that I met someone who was able to put me in contact with my future employer. Without Assumption’s alumni network, I would not have been given the opportunity, which will now likely define my future and my career.

Assumption has made me grow in many ways as a student and as a person. I learned so much from all the professors here and my major has aided immensely on preparing me for my internship and career. Working at New England Center for Children has taught me about working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder.

Internship: Young Parents Program Intern at YWCA of Central Massachusetts; Post-Grad Plans: Assistant Director of Campus Ministry at Cristo Rey San Jose Jesuit High School

The hands-on experience I gained through my internship has educated me in a way that no textbook can about how to be a professional in the human services field and how to relate to those who tend to be overlooked or fall through the cracks. My professors taught me to be passionate about the work I do and have prepared me for any opportunity.

Madeline McLean

Internship: Grants Intern at The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts

I really enjoy my internship because I feel like a part of the team. They make a remarkable difference in communities where people really need the help. It's a special experience to be a part of an organization that makes such a positive impact on their community.

Stephen Johnson
Biology with a concentration in Physical Therapy '16
Internship: Physical Therapy Assistant at Worcester Physical Therapy; Post-Grad Plans: Doctor of Physical Therapy at Boston University

With over 100 hours of handling clients with neurological, cardiopulmonary, vestibular, orthopedic, integumentary, issues; I learned a myriad of “soft skills” that cannot be learned from any textbook. I learned how to communicate my ideas and treatment plans to patients and aid them in effectively executing treatment plans under the guidance of licensed Physical Therapists. I also learned the importance of building rapport with clients, which I believe has set a solid foundation for me as I begin my studies and career as a future healthcare professional.

Psychology '16
Post-Grad Plans: Accelerated Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

I have had many opportunities through Assumption to work in health care environments. The courses I have taken through the Natural Sciences and Psychology departments have enabled me to pursue a career in nursing. I am confident I’ll excel in nursing school because of the rigorous academic programs here at Assumption.
