More Than a Student.
Mohammad Sharouj, a senior at St. Luke’s, is a student ambassador and intern working with the admissions department. English is Mo’s second language and he hopes to further improve his communication skills by having this experience. He loves meeting new people and enjoys sharing his unique and wonderful story about his time as a Wildcat!
Fun Fact: Mo came to St. Luke’s in 7th grade barely speaking English. Five years later, Mo is the student body president and adored by so many! His leadership is inspiring to all. Mo hopes that his time as an intern will also be a valuable lesson with regards to balancing academics, athletics, and the internship before he heads into “the real world.”
St. Luke’s is happy to provide internships as they are invaluable experiences for high school students. Internships provide very specific experiences for students interested in a certain path. They not only help resumes stand out to admissions committees and future employers, but they also demonstrate that our students are spending time learning and working with others. Furthermore, internships teach important skills that students will need in any field.
According to an annual survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 91 percent of employers said candidate experience is a factor in hiring decisions. Nearly half of surveyed employers wanted experience to come from internships or co-op programs.
An internship is the best way to be immersed in a real-world environment, nothing can replace hands-on experiences. We are blessed to provide Connor with this experience to help him further develop his knowledge that will benefit him in college and life.
We can’t wait to see what Mohammad’s VERY BRIGHT future has in store! We are so blessed to have him as a part of our school.
About our Admission interns: Admission Interns are student ambassadors who have been selected to represent St. Luke’s to prospective students and parents. Admission interns bring unique perspectives on the student experience, representing athletics, arts, and all St. Luke’s clubs. Throughout the internship, the admission interns will develop and strengthen interpersonal communication skills. They will practice writing and effectively articulating their personal story with a goal to increase confidence in impromptu speaking. Interns will also learn the importance of relationship management within a business setting through the use of CRM (Customer Relationship Management) technology.
