Summer Internships: Tar Heels Hard At Work

Geoffrey Bell is a junior at Carolina studying Business Administration and German Literature – this past summer, he interned with AT&T at their Atlanta offices, where he worked on a team responsible for all promotions for the company’s consumer products. “I’ve learned a lot about careers I never knew existed,” Geoffrey told us. “That’s led me to experiences I don’t think I would’ve had otherwise.” He had the opportunity to participate in community service activities with AT&T, sorting food at the Atlanta Food Bank and painting a local elementary school. Team meetings were his favorite part of the day, but most of all, he loved working with a company that cared so much about the community and gave him opportunities to help as well.

“Going to Carolina has by far been one of the most eye-opening and transformative experiences of my life thus far. I’ve learned a lot about careers I never knew existed and am always surrounded by smart, driven and caring people.  I’m always pushed to do my best and that’s led me to experiences I don’t think I would have had otherwise.”
