“I have the honor of interning in the Office of Enterprise Business Solutions (EBS) at the U.S. Department of Treasury. This office deals with the creation of website products, development, and data analytics.
“Because of the sensitive nature of my work, I actually can’t share specific details about it with anyone outside of my department! But I can say this — I am learning how to balance a serious workload and how to perform under the pressure of the professional world.
“Two highlights of my internship have been:
“First, I get to regularly meet with high-ranking officials from all across the Treasury, including individuals in financial crimes and terrorism; I even met the Secretary of the Treasury and shook his hand!
“Second, as an intern at the Treasury Department, I have access to the Main Treasury building which means I get to walk the historic golden hall where Hamilton once walked (presumably), and I get to be surrounded every day by the amazing history of our country at work.
“And if those weren’t enough, I also have access to the west side of the White House and can walk that side of the lawn in the morning before work!”For more information about Olivet’s School of Business and study abroad opportunities, contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 800-648-1463.
