Connections Beyond the Classroom

Intern. Interview. Shadow. Get a taste of a career.

Connections Beyond the Classroom (CBC) provides Menlo students the opportunity to explore career options through internships and shadow experiences even before they enter college. Work-based learning experiences are a great way to narrow interests and focus future learning. Many of the opportunities listed in the CBC database are made possible by our current parents and the alumni community, and therefore unique and exclusive to Menlo School students and young alumni.

SPOTLIGHT ON STUDENT INTERNS

Pragya, Class of 2018 My name is Pragya A and I am a Senior.  I’d like to share my internship experience with you.  The school year is busy for me with classwork and homework and my interests in volunteer tutoring @ Taft and Classical music lessons. But, I was able to intern for a couple of months last summer at  a customer success company.  The nice thing about this opportunity was that my work schedule was flexible and I could work from home, and even go on vacation as long as I let my boss know in advance. I helped create and publish product content as posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In. I also helped design multiple versions of the company logo and collect customer data from other resources. I learned a lot about how to attract customers to a company and how important networking is, especially for startups. I would absolutely recommend this internship to Menlo students because it was nice having exposure to the working world and meeting new people in a setting completely different from the ones I‘m used to.
