“Charles Aris makes each individual feel like a valued member of the team – it doesn’t matter if you’re full-time, part-time or an intern. In my experience as a marketing and digital intern, I’ve gained and improved many skills including content writing, SEO, analytics and website editing. One of the many benefits of interning in this department is that you’re able to customize your experience based on what you’d like to learn, allowing for the maximum amount of growth and knowledge acquisition. The team consistently asks for my feedback and ideas, which enables me to utilize and build upon previous knowledge. I’m so thankful to partake in a post-graduate internship with this firm and gain valuable experience while beginning my full-time job search. I would highly recommend this internship program to anyone!”

Their welcoming presence and eagerness to create great work motivated me to be the best possible intern I could be. Under great mentors, the marketing and digital team helped bring out my creative spirit and taught me so many things that will be applicable toward my future career. I am so thankful that Charles Aris is the first steppingstone to a successful future – and I will take this knowledge with me for years to come!”

“My recruiting internship at Charles Aris was a rewarding experience because it created an environment that fostered learning through the support of mentors and practice leaders. I had the opportunity to work alongside my mentor in her searches to learn the technical procedures and understand how to engage with clients by properly preparing for a call. I’m confident this experience gave me an honest reality of what it’s like to be a full-time member of the team as an associate recruiter, which I look forward to starting as the next step of my career!”
