What Former Students Say

  • "Being an Envoy helped me develop a formula for presenting myself that not only got me great internships but has also led to me my dream job. I believe there is nothing more important than students getting strong internships... Internships are the new way these companies hire, they are essential in getting a foot in the door early." — Kale Odhner, '18 Eng (ME)

  • "I found that helping others through the Envoys résumé reviews helped me develop communication skills... My résumé was one element that helped me get internships at ExxonMobil and my full-time position at CB&I. Now, in my MBA program at Penn, a summer internship with Honeywell has put me in position to achieve my long-term goal of being a leader in energy sustainability. In short, summer internships have truly helped me try out different industries and job functions. They allowed me to course-correct as I gained more experience and figured out what I wanted to do." — Kanupriya Samarendra, '12 Eng (CE/Entrepreneurship)
