Former Fundraising & Event Planning Intern at Artists Creating Together
over 1 year ago
I noticed towards the end of the HTM program, in any emphasis, concepts and projects became very community focused. Grand Rapids is a rapidly growing hospitality destination here in Michigan. By participating and learning in a professional program that focuses on growing, enriching and engaging our local community, I learned how important this was to me too. I learned that it was personally important for me to work at a company/organization in the future that values the role it plays in a community, one that takes care of its community and encourages their employees and customers to do the same. Having to complete multiple internships within the HTM program, gets all students ready for life after college by helping guide us to decided what we look for in employers and helps gain more experience than a lot of other students may have after graduation.
