Silicon Valley, CA - February 23rd - University of Dreams (www.SummerInternships.com) hires Intern Queen, Lauren Berger, to help promote their Summer Internship Programs globally. Berger currently runs The quarterlife Internship Program Powered By The Intern Queen on www.quarterlife.com/intern, a resource for students looking for internships in media, entertainment, journalism, sports, and marketing. Berger got her title of “Intern Queen” after completing 15 internships during her four years of college. Berger will serve as a spokesperson for University of Dreams and help raise awareness about the program to students internationally. Berger will host a series of weekly conference calls that inform students and parents about the program and will provide tips and tools for students to make the most of their internships.
“Students are signing up for this experience in droves. I didn’t have the luxury of participating in a program like this as an intern. I had to secure my own internship, housing, make new friends, pay for food, and ship my car out. Students participating in University of Dreams have their food, housing, transportation, and social activities covered, in addition to internship placement at top tier companies. They don’t have to worry about making new friends because there are so many other students in the program. I wish I knew about University of Dreams,” says Berger about the program.
University of Dreams Inc. (www.SummerInternships.com) was founded in February of 2000. That first summer, 73 participants joined us at Santa Clara University, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, California, where they had the opportunity to meet other motivated college students, grow as individuals, and pursue their dreams in their desired career field with an internship. After the initial program in the Silicon Valley, we have added programs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Barcelona, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, San Francisco, and Sydney. This summer we will add programs in Washington D.C. and San Diego. We have also begun offering Fall and Spring Internship Programs in select cities for students who want to further their career through living, working, and earning contract academic credit for an entire semester in their dream city. Enrollment in the University of Dreams programs has grown each year, including over 1,300 participants in 2008, proof that students are having fantastic experiences and are spreading the word about University of Dreams.
