Now that you know what kind of opportunities are available to college students from Part 1 of this series, our scholars will share the best and hardest parts of their opportunities. Just because you are a college student, it doesn’t mean your boss will be easy on you, so you must be prepared for any kind of situation. See how these six Pullman Scholars handled the enjoyable and challenging tasks they encountered this summer.
The more career and real-life experience you add to your resume while attending college, the better. Employers will appreciate your work ethic, the skills you’ve acquired, and your eagerness to learn your field of interest. In our July edition of the Pullman Scholar newsletter, On Board, we learned about six summer opportunities our scholars took advantage of throughout the U.S. and even South America. For the first part of this two-part series, you’ll learn how our scholars found and landed their opportunities, what their typical days were like if housing was offered (if applicable), and if the opportunity was paid.
With these insights, we hope you’ll be empowered to find an opportunity during a break. It doesn’t matter what year in college you are, companies are looking for fresh ideas and people. Just take a look at what the following scholars did this summer.
