Completing her second internship this fall 2016 semester, Logan Sharlow is getting a good range of experience prior to graduation this coming May of 2017. Logan is currently completing the perceptions program at the Willimantic AIC, where she keeps track of offenders, who were recently released from jail. This internship was in sharp contrast compared to her first internship where she tutored students at Coventry High School.
Logan conducts case management sessions, runs group modules/activities, and other extra activities that assist the receptionist. Learning social skills such as creating relationships with strangers and using the popular slogan, “treat everyone as equals,” are huge takeaways that Logan will start to implement more in her every day life. She said that she didn’t know what her career goals and objectives were until she started completing internships. Logan mention that completing an internship opened her eyes to what her career goals are after college. Because of this fact, Logan would like to recommend to her peers to start looking for internship opportunities early.
“It was a very eye opening experience and now I have a better sense of what direction I want to go in next.” Logan will be completing her third internship next semester that is expected to be related to her criminology minor.
