Internships ›

Internships play a massive role in departments across the entire College of Business. Featured to the left is Addison Dorris, who recently interned with Dollar General. Below is the testimonial she provided about her internship experience.

“During my internship, I developed my skillsets in project management, collaboration, human resources, and professional writing and design. Throughout the summer, I was able to take the lessons I learned in the classroom and apply them real-world situations. After this experience, I better understand how HR operates at a major corporation. This internship experience helped me realize that a career in Human Resources is the direction I want to take for my future!”
