"The most eye-opening aspect of my internships at McGladrey and Hy-Vee was realizing how life changing and how important they really are. Internships have been, by far, the most important experiences of my college career. I learned so much in just a semester’s time at McGladrey and gained real-world experience that you just can’t simulate in a classroom. My experiences will benefit me in my future career because future employers will be able to look at my resume and see that I took the initiative during my busy college career to seek out internships."
