PAST INTERNS ON THEIR EXPERIENCE AT BRAINHEALTH:
“I couldn’t have asked for a better or more inspiring, diverse team to work with this summer. I was exposed to projects in marketing, workplace engagement, brand management, community relations, event planning and much more. I truly valued being able to dip my foot in all of these specialties and feel that by learning the programs, techniques and skills required of each task, I was able to become a well-rounded individual in the professional sphere. I can now confidently say that I am a better communicator and leader.” –Natalie M., 2017 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern
“Working in such a dynamic environment [at the Center for BrainHealth] allowed me to improve how I work under pressure, which will be invaluable throughout my career. The people I worked with made the internship experience unlike any I have had before! They were always open, honest, and willing to help me in any way if I didn’t know how to do something.”
-Sarah H., 2016 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern
“Working as an intern at the Center for BrainHealth was an amazing opportunity that allowed me to learn the structure, voice, dynamics, and daily-life of an organization. I feel so lucky to have worked with such an encouraging staff that both guided and invited my creativity. Never have I felt so comfortable interacting with all employees, regardless of department or position, as I did at the Center. I always have had an interest in communications and working to benefit others, but this internship encompassed both of those more than I could have ever hoped!”
-Emily G., 2015 ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program Intern
“The Center [for BrainHealth] offers many distinct opportunities for interns. Through the course of the internship, I was able to strengthen my public relations skills, professional development, and leadership abilities. The Community Relations team was encouraging, valued my ideas, and worked as a unified team. I learned valuable ways to maintain donor relations and motivate others to support a worthy cause. When I went back to Baylor this fall, I was able to look at my courses from a new perspective and apply what I had learned. This experience was invaluable for me.”
