Southwestern Advantage set me up for success after college, and for that, I’m incredibly grateful. Because of a friend I made who was also part of the internship that summer, I was able to move to San Francisco and immediately get a job that I love working in executive placement downtown in the Financial District — right out of college. Interestingly enough, this was at the height of the job crunch in 2010! If you are a college student, this is the by far the best option for you. You will learn to expand your skill-set, and actually have real-world experience, true substance, to put on your resume. You will meet incredible people who believe what you believe; people who will be lifelong friends. This experience will help you get your foot in the door for your first career job. Guaranteed. I won’t lie – the summers are tough; especially summer #1. But they’re more than worth it!
