"Arbordale Publishing was not only my favorite internship, but the best! The employees and the Germans were the best people to work with. The experience was very fulfilling and I advise anyone interested in publishing, marketing, business, or public relations to consider this remarkable company."
"The internship was truly a rewarding experience. I learned a lot about the entire business process from receiving orders, shipping the books, receiving payments from customers, etc. The best part was how I looked forward to coming to the office every day."
"My internship with Arbordale gave me valuable office experience and insight into the publishing world. I was lucky to have the opportunity to work with such an outstanding staff of people, and to have such a fullfilling internship experience."
Every week they gave me several projects/tasks, answered any questions but ultimately left me to work independently. I think it's important for students my age to be able to work without too much supervision and be forced to make their own decisions through critical thinking. It was also nice to be included in the staff meetings. There was a lot to be learned from just listening to everyone."
