Internships are vital in fueling Maryland’s workforce. At the Maryland Chamber, interns walk away with knowledge and skills they can take with them as the enter their careers. Our new series, Mentored in Maryland, highlights Maryland Chamber members’ influence and impact on Maryland’s talent pipeline—and where better to start than with our very own interns!
WATCH THEIR INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE:
Maryland Chamber of Commerce interns reflect on:
GAINING INDUSTRY SPECIFIC SKILLS
“My role felt dynamic and challenging as it pushed me outside of my comfort zone. The duties changed daily as well, which taught me to work and think on my feet. I really felt like I have gained valuable hands on experience in the events industry.”
—Rebecca Floyd, Events Intern
THE VALUE OF TEAMWORK
“The amount of valuable, real life experience I have gained here at the Chamber has been not only exciting, but also incredibly valuable to me. The ability to work as part of a team—and not just for a team—has been incredibly valuable and has taught me incredible lessons on how businesses succeed when the organization as a whole works together for a common goal.”
—Hamzah Ameem, Business Development Intern
CURIOSITY IS KEY
“It’s been my philosophy as an intern to knock on everybody’s door and say, ‘Hi, can I help you with you something?’ Curiosity, open communication and flexibility have been things that really help both interns and employers thrive.”
—Grayce Burns, Governmental Affairs Intern
