  3. 3. lorem ipsum dolor issue, date Intern Queen Lauren Berger We have some very exciting events planned for AWC this year! Our first event is Intern Queen Lauren Berger. Berger is CEO of and works with over 500 employers located throughout the U.S. and Canada and reaches over 40,000 different students, parents and employers each month. She has connected hundreds of students with their dream internship by allowing them to sign up for free internship listings on her website. On September 8th Berger will speak to Purdue students about the importance of securing and completing their dream internship during college. She will also share her remarkable story about how she earned the title Intern Queen.

She earned her degree in Organizational Business Communications and upon graduation moved to California.

Kelly gave me such great advice on how tomarket myself and stand out in interviews. I wanted her to pass along her great knowledge to all of ourmembers. Kelly is planning to join us on November 2nd. Another goal of mine this year is to have interactive presentations at meetings and get each of you involved so we can all get to know each other better. We do not have guest speakers planned for every meeting. We have a couple meetings set up where we will discuss our internship experiences, give helpful tips and hints and share internship and job postings as they come. A couple things I want to mention; I cannot stress enough the importance of staying involved in our club and attend meetings and events. It’s more beneficial to you when searching for jobs in the future to be able to explain what you have done for an organization, rather than just paying the dues, placing it on your resume and never attending a meeting. I have found much success by becoming more involved and taking on many roles in AWC. I want you all to have the same success and be able to stand out with all your experience and involvement. Ourexec has worked very hard to plan meetings that will be beneficial to you and your careers.One last thing, please check out our new website at A lot of work was putin designing it. We will be posting lots of information to keep you updated with the latest news from AWC.I look forward to meeting everyone and having a great year!Sincerely,Sarah WartmanAWC President 3
