WTC Intern Presents at Lebanon Valley College's Inquiry 2014!

Posted by Luke Stouffer

On Thursday, April 10, I was given the opportunity to present my internship here at World Trade Center Harrisburg as part of the "International Internship Corner" at Lebanon Valley College's Inquiry 2014.  Inquiry is a symposium dedicated to celebrating the scholarly, scientific, and creative achievements of LVC students.  There were several intriguing presentations of scientific experiments, psychological studies, and even a student run record label business to name a few.  However, the "International Internship Corner" was unique in that it brought together three students with international business-based internships to present such possibilities to their peers.  I was fortunate to be presenting with former WTC Harrisburg Intern Cody Richard (currently with Assistive Technology Products) and current World Affairs Council of Harrisburg Intern Christian Eisenhour.  Together, we created a display booth to best integrate our respective internships as one presentation.

We spoke with several curious visitors throughout the evening, including a few students who were interested in succeeding us in our positions.  Each of us happily informed the visitors of our job responsibilities and accomplishments.  I shared several of the "Member Spotlights" that I developed, which can be found on WTC Harrisburg's website.  I also discussed some of the cultural reports, trade leads, events, and market research such as the Harrisburg International Airport Travel Survey that I have worked on during my time as an intern.  Overall, it was a very successful and rewarding night to display what I have learned through my internship as it comes to a close.
