I can’t emphasize enough that AmSpec tries its best to cram as many interns into the office as possible because we really value the opportunity to help people coming through the pipeline. It’s all the more encouraging when people who have interned with us go on to do impressive things.
So it’s with a certain amount of pride I can say that summer 08 intern Emily Esfahani-Smith will be a Bartley fellow at the Wall Street Journal following her graduation from Dartmouth College. This fellowship is a really solid opportunity, and will undoubtedly launch Emily’s career. We’re just glad we were around before Emily became a big deal.
That said, I’d be remiss not to mention that Jillian Kay Melchior is another recipient, and though she hasn’t interned with AmSpec, we consider her a good friend and proud of the association as well.
For those that haven’t, applied for an AmSpec internship. We have them in the fall, spring, summer, and winter, and we’re very flexible. It’s just important that we have talented people come on board so we can get some work done.
