The employers of our most recent group of college interns gave consistently positive feedback on working with our scholars, 100% of survey respondents indicating they would hire a Rainier Scholar again! They were recognized for their ability to adapt and thrive in structured as well as unstructured environments. Here are some quotes from workplace supervisors about the strong work-ethic, problem-solving ability and initiative of this group of future leaders.


“Alan is exactly what we are looking for in our future talent pipeline. He learns quickly, shows initiative and works well with teams.”


Brighton Jones:
“Bisrat made a big contribution to our culture. He genuinely wanted to be a part of not only our business but our office. His enthusiasm is contagious.”

“Shirley was great, (with a) high quality of work, enthusiasm and energy, positive and willingness to learn!”

“Sam was well qualified to handle these responsibilities with little need for constant monitoring or training, and the summer could not have been as successful for our organization as it was without her help.”
