Internships are becoming increasingly valuable for graduates and employers. Students are given real life experience beyond the classroom, and businesses are given fresh ideas to consider. For seven years now, Graceland students have been interning with McClain Enterprises on the Independence square. These students learn all aspects of running a business, from social media marketing to event planning and cost analysis. The skills and experiences gained while interning become invaluable as students graduate and begin their job search.
