'Career Explorers' celebrate internship experiences with local organizations

University of Southern Maine students who completed fall internships through the Career & Employment Hub's "Career Exploration Across Sectors" program gathered Thursday, Dec. 6th, to celebrate their accomplishments and share their experiences.

This program, made possible by the Maine Economic Improvement Fund, provides students the opportunity to be paid for project-based internships that contribute to the growth of Maine's economy.

This semester 24 students interned at 18 organizations ranging from IDEXX to Pine Point Oyster Company to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. For this capstone event, each student created a poster showcasing their internship experience and proudly presented to their peers and Hub staff in a gallery-walk style format.
