What Charles Aris internship alumni have to say …

“Charles Aris Inc. offers a great internship program for students / individuals who want to work in an environment that facilitates growth, teamwork and creativity. As a three-time Digital Marketing intern with Charles Aris, I had the opportunity to write blog posts, manage the company’s website and assist in creating promotional videos. If you are looking for an internship that challenges you, offers you real-world experience and allows you to lead your own projects, then CAI is the place for you.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my internship experience at Charles Aris. As a three-time intern, I got to work on many company projects on a wide range of subjects. Brian Styers, my internship coordinator as the firm’s senior director of knowledge management, is very receptive to new ideas and is eager to implement them while teaching valuable lessons along the way. I’ve learned to think like an editor when creating and posting content on the company’s digital channels. Knowledge Management team members and my fellow interns exposed me to useful software and processes for analyzing data, managing projects and maximizing marketing efficiency. Most of all, I’ve been able to use my strengths of video editing and creativity to write, direct and produce several company videos which showcase the essence of Charles Aris culture. Afterward, I was humbled (and admittedly shocked) to be offered a full-time role with the company. Starting my post-MBA career here is great because I know I’ll continue to learn and grow professionally and personally each and every day. P.S. – The new building is sweet!

“The people are great to work with. They encouraged me to speak up and ask questions. From shadowing senior researchers Lauren Lunsford and Ben Wolf, I learned about the executive search industry, American business practices and the latest research methods. Brian Styers, my internship coordinator, was very approachable and a solid mentor for my personal and professional development.”

– Runnan Zhang, 2017 UNC Greensboro graduate
