I’ve beenemployed since I was sixteen years old and I will honestly say that my three months with the Navy and MilitaryExtension Internship Program were the most rewarding months of my professional growth. As my internship period dwindled down, I started to fear what I was going to do next. After I applied towhat seemed like an infinite amount of jobs, I finally received an interview with Fort Drum, New York for theposition of a Nutritionist for their Child and Youth Programs. Since one of my Bachelor Degrees is HumanNutrition, Food, and Exercise, this position seemed like the absolute perfect fit for me. I went through two sets ofinterviews and I’m proud to say I received the position and will be moving to New York in just a couple short weeks. Though I have previous experiences with nutrition and child programs and I am passionate about this line of work, I say without a doubt, my internship with the Navy and the Military Extension Internship Program help set me above all the other applicants. Before entering this program, I felt lost, like I was the only graduate that didn’t know where they were going after graduation. Now I am confident in where I stand and my options are limitless. In the future, I know if I’m involved in something that is at least half as extraordinary as my internship in Patuxent River, Maryland I will becompletely content and enthused about what life has to offer.
