This is part of a continuing series of "Summer Intern Chronicles" that Cape Cod Today will publish throughout the season. Many local college students undertake internship experiences during summer break. These internships can truly form a young person as a professional in their chosen career path. For many, the internship is their first work experience in the career they hope to pursue. These internship stories are intended to give the students an opportunity to share their experiences, showcase the work of their sponsoring organization and put in a plug for their college. The stories are written in the students' own words and published verbatim as submitted.
If your Cape & Islands or Plymouth organization hosts summer interns and you'd like them to participate, please email [email protected] and we will send you the project guidelines.
Nathan Cullivan from Bryant University
My Name is Nathan Cullivan, from Plymouth, Massachusetts and I am currently a junior at Bryant University. This summer I am interning at Rogers and Gray Insurance Agency in the Personal Lines department. My internship at Rogers and Gray has helped show me the value of strong professional relationships and the importance of effective communication throughout a team. I have learned these values through the engaging, summer long, group intern project offered here, along with the consistent flow of challenging assignments that helped open my eyes to the vast world of insurance. As I continue my studies I will make sure to bring with me the confidence I have learned at Rogers and Gray to ask questions and to never be intimidated by taking on tasks that are larger than myself.
