"The best thing about my internship is the amount of work I am given and the trust that the director of my department has in me. I am given real projects/assignments to solve, and it has been very exciting! "
– Julian Alston, Class of 2018

Julian Alston '18 from Downingtown, Pennsylvania is an international management major on our Pleasantville campus. Although he's just going into his junior year, he's been quite involved on campus! Julian is Student Government Association vice president of administration, a member of the Lambda Sigma National Honor Society, the Urban Male Initiative and the Black Student Union. He's also a mentor with the AALANA Mentorship Program, as well as a student ambassador for Pace University Digital Enrollment. This summer, Julian is interning at Comcast in Philadelphia.

Where are you currently interning? Have you had any other internships previously?
I am currently interning at the global headquarters at Comcast Corporate in Philadelphia as a Business Operations Analyst. I have held two other internships previously: as a sales & marketing associate at Vector Marketing the summer before attending my freshman year at Pace University, and last summer as an orientation development staff member here at Pace University!  

What have you been working on at your internship? Has it sparked an interest in a career/area of study you hadn't already thought about? Or has it confirmed that you are on the right path?
During my current internship, I have been very involved with national supply chain management with a fusion of external business intelligence ventures here at Comcast. This has sparked an interest in a career of marketing, business intelligence and business operations or business development. I believe that with this internship I am on the right path to reach my career goals.  

Do you believe your internship experience has helped to prepare you for your future? How so?
I do believe that my internship has given me great experience to prepare me for my future. This internship has taught me plenty of corporate lessons; for example, how to carry myself in meetings, presentations and conferences. I have also learned how important professional networking is!  

Any advice for other Lubin students looking for internships? What Pace resources have you used to help you, and would you recommend them to other students?
My biggest advice to Lubin students looking for internships is to really network and promote your best personal brand. With that being said, be aware and cautious of what you post on social media and use Linkedin a lot!
