Loveland High School Student Hannah Matuszak spent her summer interning at KnowledgeWorks

From P&G to Kroger and Xavier University to KnowledgeWorks – LHS students spent the summer break hard at work

Summer break proved to be an excellent time to get to work for four Loveland High School (LHS) students who turned skills they learned inside the classroom into opportunities to grow in a professional environment. The internships were obtained through the LHS chapter of INTERalliance. The chapter is part of the INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati (Identify, Nurture, Train, Employ, Retain), a nonprofit designed to create an environment that allows students to network with Information Technology (IT) business professionals.

“Getting an internship does take some doing in that it is a competitive pool from which employers get to pick,” said Phil Marchal, LHS computer programming/web design teacher and INTERalliance sponsor. “Students apply, submit a resume, and go through an interview process by the business.”

Graduating senior Josh Reichman worked for Xavier University, graduating senior Emily Rasmussen interned at P&G, and graduating senior Devin Lally spent the summer at both INTERalliance and Kroger. Rising senior Hannah Matuszak spent her summer internship at KnowledgeWorks as part of the communication team working with people who specialize in web design, public relations and writing.

One of the biggest lessons I learned in the course of my internship was how much attention to detail every piece of a communications job requires,” said Matuszak. “Loveland High School has a great selection of technology-based classes. I got the opportunity to edit parts of KnowledgeWorks’ website and assist with the transition to a new website design, which I already had experience with thanks to what I learned in class over the past three years.”
