Success Stories: Internship Testimonials

The Michelin Career Center, through partnerships with various organizations, has been linking students and alumni with their choice of employers to achieve life-long career success. We strive to meet the expectations of both student interns and potential employers. Here are a few success stories.

Clemson University has proven to be an effective partner in our recruiting process. Working closely with the Career Center, we've been able to select motivated students for our intern program and give them a flavor of what opportunities and challenges await them upon graduation."
Randy Fix
Target Stores
Anderson Store Manager
Having Anderson within such a close distance to Clemson allowed me to obtain an internship with a national corporation, while continuing my classes. The internship has turned into a fulltime position that otherwise may not have happened. Having the opportunity to participate in an internship while attending school it gave me the work experience that Target and so many other companies look for."
Seth Finkey
Clemson University
Student Intern
There are two things that I enjoyed most about my internship experience. First, I had a lot of responsibilities. They recognized the fact that I had substantial amount of prior experience and didn't load me down with a lot of mundane tasks. Instead, I functioned as more or less a full-time employee."

Rehrig Pacific Company
(Plastic Injection Molding)
Project/Design Engineering Intern

My first internship involved helping staff at the Aiken call Center. I sent out applications, acceptance letters, rejection letters, assisted with the interviews, and made sure potential hires passed their drug screen and background check. During my second internship I assisted with the development of an online training program for SCANA. I met with different vendors to determine different options, made sure courses matched SCANA's core competencies, and once I found the right vendor, planned and tested the "pilot plan." This online training program should have begun right after I finished my internship. My internship experiences validated my career choice in Human Resources."

Clemson University has been instrumental to the success of our Boys & Girls Clubs program. We have hired numerous students as part-time program aides to facilitate our clubs. In the past 2 years, 4 have been promoted through the organization to full-time positions. Our staff is our greatest resource and we rely on them greatly to take care of our children. I want to thank the Michelin Career Center for playing a vital role in our success".
