College Works Reviews From Students

Past Interns give their College Works reviews on their experience. Check out what they have to say about running their own painting business while on summer break. In their own words, these undergraduate students can give you an idea of what is is like to be fully trained to run a business, gain real-world experience, challenge yourself and your crew, and how much fun you can have in the process.

What Students Are Saying About the Internship


Throughout my experience with College Works Painting I have learned more than I would in any other internship setting. Usual internships are full of paperwork, uncomfortable clothes, and disgruntled people. While at some pointed during the summer I did deal with disgruntled employees and clients, no other internship would have taught me how to effectively handle and resolve such situations.

Most internships out there are straight up just work. College Works made sure that they implemented fun activities for their interns and I really appreciated that.

I wholeheartedly recommend taking on the College Works internship to anyone looking to challenge themselves, anyone who wants more out of their summer that what most college students do in between semesters.

Aside from the skills I learned, the overall experience built my confidence and taught me how to deal with stress. Although this program was difficult at times, it made me a stronger person. Another major thing I got out of the internship is a whole new network of people that are motivated, hard workers with lots of potential.

They don't tell you to do things a certain way or anything. They give guidelines and let you figure it out from there, which I personally think helped this program be so great and let the interns develop, learn and grow at a much higher level.
