Education Consultant Intern

“I really liked the fact that I had the freedom to share my experiences of college with high-school students in China. I was also able to use my current knowledge from college to teach a zoom seminar on mental health in a college environment which was interesting to most students specifically from Asia. ”

Educational Consultant Intern

“- Great company culture: I loved working with bright and passionate point persons on various projects, hearing about their experiences/interests/why they were at ESC, and learning from them. - Meaningful student work: ESC students are incredibly talented and wonderful to work with. I liked how each student I worked with challenged me in a different way (I helped some on independent projects, gave insider perspective as to U.S. colleges, and encouraged interest development through critical thinking), and I could feel the impact my sessions with them had.”
