Comments from past students

C. J. – University of Iowa, Fall 2018: “I believe I will use this internship experience in the future back in my country very often because of the communication skills I learned. Being exposed to different ways of thinking is important to learning in the workplace and I believe it makes me think differently and positively as well. My internship at Arithmos has helped me learn more about myself through being put out of my comfort zone. I have learned to be a lot more independent and figure things out on my own. This was very important for me because this is a good skill to have not only in a work setting but also in day to day life.

Comments from past students

T.G. – University of Cincinnati, Fall 2018: “Although my internship with ASHT*ART exceeded my expectations, it was not exactly what I thought it would be: it was better. ASHT*ART is the perfect mix of glam and business, which is ideal for a student pursuing a career in marketing.
