Interview with Steven's Internship Sponsor

They're getting to see, experience, and interact with real-life business, with real-life people who are doing this for a career. I just think it's a wonderful program that benefits both the company and the students.

Interview with Steven's Internship Sponsor

I'd say, don't be afraid to talk to other people in the office. Don't be afraid to jump into things. … you may not initially think you are suited for finance, but after talking to people about it, it can really open it up for you.

Morgan Whitmer, Sales Planning Analyst, Asia Pacific, Delta Air Lines (TUJ graduate, class of 2014; Delta intern spring 2013)
