Carter Jennings, depicted all the way to the left, is a senior who went a little farther than most to do his internship.  After networking through his uncle, he landed his internship at Aramark at a location in Utah.  While working out west, Carter was in charge of running a gift shop on a resort, and helping dock workers move boats around on the nearby Lake Powell.  Learning how to be the manager of a retail location was integral to Carter's career aspirations because his goal is to manage a resort in the future.

Carter's advice for other students who are seeking internships is to do something that you love above everything else.  By doing something that is fun, you will not regret it no matter how much money you are making.  Carter says that the money will come as long as you do a good job, and it is easy to do a good job when you are doing something you are passionate about.
