“IGNITE staff sends me job leads and they help me with my resume and cover letters. My internship is a really good experience and I’m learning how to apply my knowledge to real-life situations. It's showing me what I like, and some of what I don’t—it’s giving me more direction on where I want to go with my career. I would definitely recommend the IGNITE program. It provides a lot of useful resources."
