Students participate in summer internships to gain valuable work experience and make networking contacts in the employing community. St. Thomas students have participated for six years in an internship program offered through Wells Fargo (formerly Norwest).
The program hired 60 interns, seven of whom were UST students, for summer 2000 at various divisions and locations throughout the Twin Cities. To recognize the interns’ contributions, a celebration luncheon was held on Aug. 8. Becky Durham, career specialist from Counseling and Career Services, attended the event. The featured intern speaker was Linh Nguyen, a UST student who has worked in Brokerage Services. Nguyen had a positive experience and she is planning to continue her career with Wells Fargo after graduation.
