Testimonials

I am a rising senior and interned for the Finance Department at The International Transport Workers’ Federation.

Working for the ITF was a revealing experience; I learned about the scope of my interests and if those interests coincide with a future in Finance or Accounting. This internship has provided me with the necessary skills of working efficiently without error and maintaining a strong focus throughout the day that will help me to be successful after Richmond.

I mostly am enjoying the positive relationships that I am building with my co-workers, which I hope will persist after I leave in August.

Working at the ITF is both challenging and comforting, and I am grateful for this experience.
