What Our Students Are Saying
The internship was a pivotal point for me, one which really brought my career aspirations into focus. I got my job, working as a line maintenance planner, because of the skills I learned through the LifeLaunching internship.
Chris H., LifeLaunching Program Graduate
I learned lots of things with Life Launching that I would never learn in any internship program. It made me know what career I wanted to choose. Life Launching changed the negative things about me to positive outcomes. It made me feel and see how the work life is and it prepared me take multiple challenges and change those challenges into great outcomes. I believe that Life Launching must be found in all university campuses because this program is a huge opportunity for anyone's career to be successful.
Eyas H., Purdue Student
LifeLaunching has helped me to narrow down my career goals both on-campus and in the community. The program allows for students, like me, to learn many different real world skills and professionally engage with corporations I hope to work for. I have been able to connect with professionals in my field and get a grasp on what my future career has in store for me.
Jonny, The University of Akron
The LifeLaunching curriculum is a wonderful way for college kids to address the gap between the life skills that colleges should be (but all too often aren't) teaching, and the skills that businesses require of their employees. The staff genuinely cares about giving students the tools they need to succeed in the professional world, and the instruction and mentorship they provide is invaluable.
Vik, Oberlin University
Life Launching really filled in the missing pieces that I needed to understand how to get to where I wanted to go and be professionally. Campus career services give you the map of what to do to fulfill your career dreams but LifeLaunching is your tour guide. They take you where you want to go and set you up to reach your own success.
Matt, John Carol University
LifeLaunching Bobcats has taught me invaluable life skills like no other organization or department on campus. This program has enhanced my professional development while still allowing me to have an active social life.
Terrence, Ohio University
LifeLaunching has greatly enhanced my networking and interview skills and I would definitely urge other students to join.
Jeff, Ohio University
LifeLaunching has taught me so many various skills that I didn’t know I needed for life after graduation. Whether it’s my about my credit, taxes, or tips on how to “Ace” an interview, all these skills have helped me going forward.
