"Interning at _____________ has greatly informed my knowledge of the school counseling position--in fact, my internship was probably the biggest help in securing my place in the graduate program this fall. Because of my experiences and observations here, I felt well-prepared for the interview questions the panel asked and was very comfortable talking about my understanding of the profession."

"As a Family Service Intern I experienced a range of cases, which provided me with a clearer understanding of the social service profession. Prior to my experiences as an Intern at ECKAN, my understanding was unclear as I was unaware just how much the family service workers impacted each child and their families, and the depth of involvement in which the workers engaged with the families. In addition too, insights I have gained thus far include instances, of collaborating with other service agencies to best suit each client, as every case is different, just as the depth of collaboration. As an intern I was able to contribute by assisting the current family service workers in completing necessary evaluations as well as assisting hands on with students."
